There are no endorsements on statewide races today, but the Lakeland Ledger continues it's local recommendations today with the two seats up for grabs on the Polk County Commission. It endorses former commissioner Robert Connors of Lake Wales, the Democratic nominee, over Republican incumbant Randy Wilkinson, noting that Connors "has a solid background in county operations and knows how it can affect private business" while Wilkinson has been ineffective during his eight years in office. In the other race, the newspaper picks another Democrat, Jean Reed of Winter Haven, over former commissioner and Winter Haven mayor Bruce Parker.
