Today at noon, the nonpartisan, nearly 40-year-old Tiger Bay Club invites everyone, not just members, to get informed ahead of races for District 1 and District 3 seats on the Hillsborough County Commission.
A press release says the virtual forum "will include District 1 Democratic candidates Harry Cohen and Jen McDonald and Republican candidates Tony Morejon and Scott D. Levinson; and District 3 Democratic candidates Ricardo 'Rick' Fernandez, Gwen Myers, Frank Reddick, Thomas Scott and Sky U. White; and Republican Maura Cruz Lanz."
The two-segment meeting, moderated by Tiger Bay President Yvonne Fry, is free and open to the public. It will be shown live via tigerbayclub.com and on Facebook (facebook.com/tigerbaytampa). If you still have TV, the meeting will also air on the Tampa Bay Arts and Entertainment network (Spectrum channel 636, Frontier channel 34).
Per usual, only Tiger Bay Club members may ask questions.
A subtext of the monumental movement unfolding in our streets right now is the need for people to not only march in large numbers, but show up to the polls in droves, too.
The deadline to register or change parties ahead of the 2020 primary on August 18 is July 20 (early voting stats on August 3). The deadline to register for November's general election is October 5.
