Libertarians in Pinellas County, Florida are sponsoring a forum for candidates running for the St. Pete City Council set for Saturday, August 8. They have invited all qualified candidates for the non-partisan offices to participate. Local news media has confirmed that they will cover the event.
Libertarians Stacey Selleck, Stephanie Wallace Davenport, JD Pierce, Jess Mears, and Greg Bowen organized the event.
This is not the first forum that Pinellas County Libertarians have sponsored. They ran a series of candidate forums in 2014 for all municipal races as a voter education series.
Libertarians have run for the St. Pete City Council in the past, although none are running in this election. Libertarian Joe Haynes is running for City Council in the nearby city of Seminole.
Co-emcee Robert Saviola, the Libertarian Candidate for Florida House District 69 which includes a large portion of St. Pete, will kick off the event.
