COMMISSION CANDIDATES FACE TOUGH QUESTIONS
Josh over at empericalpolk.com has a great piece about the four candidates seeking two seats on the Polk County Commission who faced the local Tiger Bay Club luncheon and their questions Monday.
Most folks work for a living and are not able to attend these monthly gatherings. Josh did a fine job in providing us with a bit more detail than you'll likely find in the print media regarding what was asked and how the candidates answered.
Next month's luncheon should be rather interesting: Congressman Adam Putnam (R), who is seeking another term in the House, will appear with his two independent opponents, Joe Viscusi and Ed Bowlin. That will be on Monday, October 2, at Peace River Country Club, 150 South Idlewild Avenue in Bartow. They do have an alternate date set of October 9 if Congress does not adjourn as originally scheduled.
