On Monday, August 9th at 7:00 p.m., Sacha Martin, President of the North Shores Improvement Association tells Historic City News local reporters that their organization will sponsor a candidate forum for contested seats in the August 24th Primary Election.
The event will be held at the North Shores Community Center located at 120 Meadow Avenue on Vilano Beach.
“We have invited candidates running opposed in the Primary Election to have the opportunity to meet and greet our local residents and to state their platform and answer questions,” Martin said.
This includes candidates for State Senate District 8, County Commission Districts 2 and 4 as well as Mosquito Control Seat 4.
To avoid duplication, Martin told Historic City News that the moderator will accept and present questions, submitted by card, from those in attendance. Each candidate will be given time to respond and will be allowed a few minutes to introduce themselves.
