Longtime supervisor Haywood Hamlet has announced that he will seek re-election to the Aspen/Phenix seat on the Charlotte County Board of Supervisors in the November general election.

According to a press release, Hamlet was first elected to the board of supervisors in 1990.

“There is always unfinished business in the county,” Hamlet said in the release. “I want to see the completion of some of the projects that are currently underway, including the Louse Creek Bridge and the new courthouse. “

The bridge, located on Route 40 just west of Phenix, is currently under construction and is a project that Hamlet has supported for more than 15 years, according to this press release.

“The future of our aging school facilities is an important issue that the board of supervisors and the Charlotte County School Board are still working to address,” he said. “Our children are the future of Charlotte County.”

Hamlet said he wants to continue to serve his community and help ensure the children get the best possible education.
“I appreciate all of the support I have received in the past,” Hamlet said, “and hope the residents of the Aspen/Phenix District will support my bid for re-election this fall.”
