What do you want to hear from Pasco County School Board candidates?

The 10 candidates for three Pasco County School Board seats will gather Monday evening for a discussion about the issues most pressing to the district.

We get to moderate. In preparing the questions, we'd like to hear from our Pasco County residents — what would you like to have the candidates talk about?

School rezoning and growth is a certain topic, given all the heated battles over the subject in the past few years.

But what else?

Send a note to [email protected], or a message on Facebook. Your ideas can become the basis for the debate.

Then be sure to come out to Pasco-Hernando State College's New Port Richey performing arts center at 6:15 p.m. July 16 to hear what the hopefuls have to say.

The candidates will be speaking by district for 45 minute segments, with District 3 first, followed by District 1 and District 5.
