After weeks of speculation by readers who had received telephone calls or were asked in person if they would support her if she sought a third term, Freeman has made her bid official.
Freeman was reelected in 2012 to her current, four-year seat (Seat 2) without opposition. Her name never appeared on a ballot during that contest.
Freeman has named Krista S. Bennett as her campaign treasurer, and herself as deputy campaign treasurer. Seats on the St Augustine City Commission are non-partisan.
Freeman, a St Augustine lawyer, lives with her husband Heinz Dauth, a son and daughter, in South Davis Shores.
