Election snafu snares local attorney, but other judges return to bench

For one Bonita Springs attorney who drove the six-hour, 420-mile trek to Tallahassee early Friday and paid the filing fee to qualify to run, there won’t be an election. Collier County Judge Christine Greider thought she’d be running against Fort Myers attorney Miguel C. Fernandez III for a circuit judge seat being vacated by Circuit Judge Daniel Monaco, who is retiring after the end of the year. But Fernandez told her a few weeks ago he wouldn’t be running. Naples defense attorney Janeice Martin also won’t have to run for election because no one else filed papers to run for the seat being vacated by Greider. Incumbents who ended up being unopposed are: Collier County Judge Rob Crown; Collier Circuit Judge Hugh Hayes; Lee circuit judges Lynn Gerald Jr., Ed Volz, Sherra Winesett, John S. Carlin, G. Keith Cary, Mark Steinbeck, and Michael McHugh.
