Compton, Proctor seek re-election in Zephyrhills

One election season has ended, but it seems another already is getting underway.

Kent Compton and Charles Proctor were the first candidates to file for the April elections, both looking to retain their seats on the Zephyrhills City Council.

Both won re-election the last time their seats were up in 2013. Compton defeated Rose Hale while Proctor was unopposed.

The two pre-filed their paperwork to run, and will need to officially qualify for the election between Feb. 10 and Feb. 17.

Compton is the wife of former city councilwoman Cathi Campton, and was first elected in 2006, according to his bio on the city’s website. He has lived in Zephyrhills since 1993, and is a local attorney.

Proctor, the current council president, owns an auto detailing shop on Eighth Street, and has lived in Florida since 1989.

Voters will elect new council members and other municipal leaders during the next election, set for April 14.
