Local media host forum for St. Petersburg mayoral candidates
ST. PETERSBURG -- The St. Petersburg Times and Bay News 9 will produce a live, one-hour "Conversation with the Candidates" on Aug. 19 at the Palladium Theater at St. Petersburg College.
The forum airs 7 to 8 p.m. and will give voters key information before the primary on what the mayoral candidates have to say on many of the issues important to St. Petersburg and the Tampa Bay area. Times political editor Adam Smith and Bay News 9's Al Ruechel will moderate. Among their questions will be some from the public submitted online and through e-mail. Citizens also will ask their own questions through videos on a big screen on stage.
