The hottest race for Broward County Commission is in northeast Broward, where a fifth candidate has joined the Democratic competition.
Terry Williams Edden, who previously ran unsuccessfully for state Senate in District 39 (Chris Smith is the senator there), filed paperwork at the county elections office for the seat.
In the 2008 Senate race, Williams Edden was last in the four-way race, getting 4.6 percent of the vote.
She said her campaign will be run by Rubin Young in Miami, who also ran her 2008 campaign.
"I respect her and I like her messages that she brings forth,'' said Young. Young, a church deacon, ran for state representative in 2008 in District 94 and lost to Hazelle Rogers.
She lists 757 NW 15 St. in Pompano as her address in campaign forms. The home is owned by Mattie Williams, according to property records.
Sounds like she's a neighbor to Carmen Jones, who joined the race a couple of weeks ago. Jones' address in the forms was 721 NW 16 St. in Pompano Beach, a home she owns, property records show. Jones is supported by Commissioner Dale Holness.
The other Dems in this race for Kristin Jacobs' open seat:
Mark Bogen, a condo attorney who moved from Palm Beach County to rent a home at 1012 E. Cypress Drive in Pompano Beach (campaign consultants Mike Kaplan, Amy Rose and Barbara Miller); Lisa Aronson, mayor/commissioner in Coconut Creek (campaign manager Robin Rorapaugh), and Charlotte Rodstrom, who lists a post office box in Pompano Beach but doesn't live in it or anywhere else in the district. She lives in Fort Lauderdale.
