Boca Raton City Councilman Scott Singer filed Sept. 8 to run for his own seat, putting to rest rumors he might run for mayor against Mayor Susan Haynie, who has the chance to run again.
Candidates have until January to file for the March 14 Municipal Election in Boca Raton. No one else has filed yet to run against Singer, who is also chairman of the Community Redevelopment Agency that governs the downtown district. He was first elected in 2014.
Without directly addressing the speculation, Singer said residents told him their voices weren’t being heard on three issues: traffic, development and long-term planning.
