My name is James Clasby, and I am ready to help lead St. Lucie County into the future..

Why am I running for office?

I am running for office because I believe our county deserves a new, authentic, educated, and experienced voice. I will champion low taxes, public safety, infrastructure projects, and attainable housing. It is time for a change in District 1. If elected I will be a valuable asset to all county residents and a natural fit on the current board to help lead St. Lucie County into the future.
