Robert McFall is on the other end of the realm this time.
In May 2018, Mr. McFall was appointed to the Deltona City Commission. As of June 15, he gave his resignation stating first that he had “no comment” and then added: “It’s for personal reasons,” which was stated in his letter.
“It is with deep regret that effective today, Monday, June 15, I resign from the office of City Commissioner, District 4, for personal reasons,” his letter states.
In a May 2018 Hometown News article, he said at the time of appointment, “I feel real good about being able to serve my community. I kind of know how the government works. I can be an asset to the community. I don’t have an agenda. I have a lot of catching up to do and a lot of reading.
“I hope to be a voice of calm and reason and be able to focus on the needs of the whole community from the kids to the seniors to the people who rent houses here. I know where we came from and I believe we’re on the right track,” he said.
In November 2018, Mr. McFall was elected to the city commission, winning by 63 votes.
The City of Deltona has posted the job vacancy, hoping to fill it. The deadline for applications is 3 p.m. Friday, July 3. A special commission meeting will be at 5 p.m. on Monday, July 13, to rank, vote and swear in the position.
At deadline, there was one person, Doug MacDonald, who submitted an application for the temporary seat, according public information officer Lee Lopez.
The City of Deltona will look to fill city commission districts 2, 4 and 6 in the general election in November. The other commissioners are Anita S. Bradford (district 2) and Chris Nabicht (district 6).
According to the city’s website, for District 2, Anita S. Bradford is unopposed and is elected; for District 4, Ruben Munoz and Dana M. McCool; and for District 6, Julio David Sosa, Lawton Anthony Colleyshaw and Jody Lee Storozuk have qualified.
