She says her biggest priorities are bringing a healthcare facility to the island and improving infrastructure.
The second candidate is Clayton Braschear, owner of Clayton's Beach Bar, as well as a construction company.
Braschear says his biggest priorities are the Island Beautification Project, beach nourishment projects, and maintaining the flats and drainage.
The third candidate is Patrick McNulty, real estate broker and owner of a construction company.
McNulty has been chairman of Planning and Zoning for eight years, and served on the shoreline task force committee.
