A no-show with no bio in Hillsborough
The Hillsborough County Democratic Party GLBTA and Black caucuses hosted a forum for judicial candidates Tuesday night. All but two candidates turned out for the well-attended discussion: Jason Montes and Martha Cook. Cook, a member of Bell Shoals Baptist Church, also declined to submit a bio for the forum's program. Judge Kevin Carey was the only male at the table, underscoring the fact that all but two of the contenders in the Aug. 26 race are women.
