As of Friday afternoon John Tupps of the governor’s press office said that applications have been received from:

Andy Coy, who sat in Hall’s old seat for 10 years before she did, leaving in 2004 to run unsuccessfully for Congress. A declared Republican candidate for the seat in 2014.

Alana Goodwin, a 20-year employee of the Lee Sheriff’s office.

John Ebling, formerly head of Veteran’s Affairs for Lee County.

Robert Chilmonik, former Lee county School Board member.

Debbie Jordan, declared Democratic candidate for the seat.

Phil Kinsey, former fire chief for Bonita Springs.

Don Stilwell, longtime Lee County manager and an unsuccessful commission candidate in 2012. A declared Republican candidate.

Chris Berardi, a former Cape Coral councilman and founder of Patriot PAC, which recruits locals candidates, and a realtor.

James Ink, a consultant and member of numerous county advisory boards.

Charles Dauray, director of the college of Life in Estero, former appointee to the South Florida Water Management District board and county Republican party chairman.

The governor has not announced a time frame for replacing Hall, who resigned this week after pleading to a federal fraud charge related to misuse of almost $34,000 in campaign funds in 2010.
