Why have a race for Mayor of St. Joe's?

We hope that the Mayor of St. Joe's Campaign is a lot of fun and that participants learn something along the way including the importance of voting. Every vote matters. Funds raised from the Mayor of St. Joe's campaign will provide support for improving landscaping, harvesting rainwater to keep our gardens beautiful, and campus-wide wayfinding along with other critical operational needs.

We are accepting applications in four categories:

1) Land: basically anything on four legs or a belly!

2) Sea: lives in the water

3) Air: they can fly - or at least try hard to

4) Plushie: filled with love

1) Your pet's name

2) Which category (listed above) that you are entering

3) Answer the following question (in 250 characters or less): If elected Mayor how will you serve others?

4) Submit a photo of your candidate (no humans in the photos). You will be able to that with your application. (JPEG image, vertical format)

The deadline to register your candidate has passed! Be a part of the process and get out and vote when the polls open!
