The Santa Christina mayoral election of 2008 will take place on June 30, 2008, and will elect a candidate to the office of Mayor of Santa Christina. The election will be held concurrently with a number of other local government elections, including the election for Mayor of Doubledance. The previous election was held on June 1, 2004. However, local government reforms enacted in 2005 now mandate that all local government elections throughout Georgeland take place on June 30. Thus, the term of the current Mayor has been extended slightly to take the new election date into account.
Incumbent Mayor Jim Smalls will seek re-election to his first full term. His predecessor, Lois Daniels, resigned in early 2008 in order to run for President. Smalls will face a potentially wide field of candidates.
The winner of the election will be sworn in as Mayor on July 10.

Potential[]

Liberal Democrats[]

The Santa Christina Herald reported on December 24, 2007 that a movement to 'draft' Robards into the Mayoral contest is gaining strength inside the Liberal Democrats. Robards, who is currently a Presidential candidate, has said he would 'consider' a Mayoral run in the future (presumably 2012) but is concentrating on the Presidential race.

Georgeland Alliance[]

  • Jim Smalls, incumbent Mayor. Smalls confirmed in late February that he would be the party's candidate at the election. Smalls has a much lower media profile than Daniels and the loss of her personal vote has rendered Smalls a third-party candidate rather than the front-runner.
  • Lois Daniels

See above for details on Daniels' potential candidacy.
