What to watch for in Monday's St. Petersburg mayoral forum
ST. PETERSBURG — Mayoral candidates Kathleen Ford and Bill Foster take the stage again at 7 tonight for an hourlong forum televised live on Bay News 9.
The event, sponsored by the cable network and the St. Petersburg Times, will be at least the fifth forum the two have attended since advancing from the Sept. 1 primary.
In recent days, the two lawyers and former City Council members have squabbled over whether to use city reserves to cut property tax rates and worked to distinguish themselves with their crime-prevention plans. More and more, Foster is backing current police Chief Chuck Harmon while Ford has yet to endorse the current chief.
But that is not all you will hear tonight.
