Democratic Florida gubernatorial candidate Andrew Gillum will be swinging through the Bay area for two separate pre-midterm events tomorrow, Friday, Oct. 19.
First up is the St. Pete stop: Gillum — who's running on a progressive platform that scares the shit out of people who don't understand our country's most necessary programs are already at least partially socialist — will be at St. Petersburg College's Gibbs Campus Music Center (6605 5th Avenue North) for a town hall meeting; doors open at 11 a.m. and the event begins at noon. You can RSVP here.
Then the Tallahassee mayor will cross the bridge for a 4 p.m. rally with the Women for Gillum at Tampa's Water Works Park (1710 N. Highland Avenue). This shindig includes live music and food trucks, and will run until 6 p.m. You can RSVP for this one here, and if you're coming, you can avail yourself of one of the following parking options:
Regional-Royal lot (1200 N. Tampa St.)
Interstate lots (under I-275 along Tampa and Morgan streets)
Pierce Street lot (1301 N. Pierce St.)
Along Doyle Carlton Street
