Mayoral contender Alex Haak to skip candidates forum

ST. PETESBURG - Mayoral hopeful Alex Haak said he would skip a candidates forum today.

"Is tonight's meeting importend, I have to go to a week-end retreat, in a leading roll, it is being held at a Rotery camp in Bradeton, from now untill Sunday, you already know my stand on the Rays. I would like to go with the group if I could, otherwise my wife would have to bring me afterwarrds," he wrote in an e-mail to the Times.

Haak was not originally invited to the forum, which also excluded lesser-known candidates Sharon Russ and Paul Congemi.

Haak recently missed a candidates forum at the Studio@620 because he said he forgot the date of the event.
