Lauderdale Lakes Mayor to run for House District 95 seat

Current Lauderdale Lakes Mayor, Barrington A. Russell, has filed to run for House District 95 seat, held by outgoing Rep. Hazelle Rogers.

Russell, who filed for the seat on January 19, is the fourth Democrat to enter the race for the majority-minority seat held by Rogers since the 2008 cycle.

The Jamaican born mayor was elected Lauderdale Lakes mayor in 2008, after a close race with Levoyd Williams.

Before he was elected mayor, Russell spent four years on the Lauderdale Lakes City Commission and also runs a real estate business in Fort Lauderdale.

Barrington will join Surinamese-born Roxanne Valies, Robert lee Lynch and Patrick Jabouin in a four-way Democratic Primary for the Broward County seat.
