Dave Eggers
DUNEDIN – Mayor Dave Eggers, 56, said Feb. 25 that he has filed paperwork to become a candidate for Pinellas County Commission, District 4.

Eggers, a Republican, joins 10 other candidates that have announced they are making a bid for the seat currently held by Commissioner Susan Latvala, who announced Jan. 28 that she is not seeking re-election in November.

A lot of reasons people run for a county commission seat are the same as those they have for running for city offices, Eggers said, noting that he has served for about 12 years as commissioner or mayor in Dunedin.

“My motivation is that I think it’s the right time for me, and I certainly feel that I can bring a fresh perspective to county government, to the team and to the residents I’ll be serving,” he said, “with a little experience thrown in.”

He said he also has served on the county Metropolitan Planning Organization and Pinellas Planning Commission for a number of years.

“I’ve had a lot of exposure working with other communities on these boards. There are countywide issues that come up in those groups, and so I feel like I’m prepared for that. There’s an awful lot going on at the county level, a lot of exciting things coming up. You feel that fresh perspective will be a good one and will bring a real strong city presence to the board,” Eggers said.

Eggers was elected mayor in 2009 and re-elected in November 2012 for a four-year term. He previously served on the Dunedin City Commission for two three-year terms.

Eggers has 29 years of experience in real estate, including marketing owner’s properties and finding new space for corporations. He owns Centerpointe Realty and has lived in Dunedin for about 25 years.

He graduated from Duke University with a bachelor’s degree in engineering in 1979 and from the University of Pittsburgh with a master’s degree in business administration in 1982.

Eggers is married and has two children.
