Subject: HAROLD DAVID BISHOP, JR. INELIGIBLE For Appointment/Election to St. Augustine Beach City Commission
1. Mr. HAROLD DAVID BISHOP, JR. registered to vote in the City of St. Augustine Beach on June 23, 2021.
2. Under the City's one-year durational residency requirement for election or appointment to City Commission, Mr. BISHOP is ineligible to be selected for the vacant Commissioner seat at your February 28, 2022 Special Meeting.
10. It is, at best, ironic that Mr. BISHOP:
- is a developer, https://9avilesstreet.com, but states he is against overdevelopment in St. Augustine Beach, and
- declares his fealty to a 1/6 insurrectionist (disgraced, twice-impeached ex-President DONALD JOHN TRUMP), while,
- making offensive, misleading or demagogic statements about current SAB Commissioners. https://www.vote4bishop.com/about, including:
Harold is currently running for the St Augustine Beach Commissioners Seat 4 in the November 8, 2022, General Election. We need Pro-American leadership during these stressful times, and science-based decisions with regard to Covid. The emotional leadership that is currently in place is unacceptable, not pro-American, and unconstitutional.

Thanks for the email.
I will have to schedule something a few weeks out.
Your question is a good one, as I just was made aware this morning, that my Voter ID date is a week out of the deadline window for St Augustine beach. I am checking with legal now to see if this error can be fixed without too much trouble. If not I will have to rethink my direction. I actually moved and closed on the condo March 11, 2021. So physically I was in the window of the requirements, however I did not update my address on my drivers license until June 21. So unless I can get this fixed I may have to abandon the St Augustine Beach position and run for a higher level office position which would be acceptable to me. I’ll get back with you in the next few days once I know the results of my legal inquiry. I want to be as transparent as possible for my supporters.
I will be posting the result of this online as soon as I know what I am going to do.
I am not a lawyer so I need to wait for a reply from legal before proceeding. Hopefully this helps until we can talk.
Dear Mr. Bishop:
1. I have some questions about your eligibility to run or be appointed to St. Augustine Beach City Commission.
