From The League of Women Voters of Martin County, a nonpartisan political organization that encourages informed and active participation in government:
Candidates for state, local, and federal offices will be on hand at Martin County’s Blake Library to speak at a pair of political forums co-hosted by the League of Women Voters of Martin County and the American Association of University Women, Stuart Branch on July 11th and July 14th.
o On July 11 th, the candidates will be those running for Martin County Commission Districts 1, 3 and 5, and Florida House and Florida Senate.
o On July 14 th, the candidates will be those running for the U.S. House of Representatives, District 18, Martin County Sheriff, Martin County Superintendent of Schools, and School Board, District 5.
The League of Women Voters began sending invitations to the candidates by registered letter several weeks ago, and will contact any late entries into the races involved.
“League forums have a reputation for diligence and fairness to candidates,” said League president Linda Grand. “That is why we document both our invitations and the candidates’ responses.”
Both forums begin at 5:00 pm and are scheduled to wrap up by 7:45 pm, and will be moderated by Dianne Pierce, AAUW’s Director of Programs.
The Blake Library is located at 2351 SE Monterey Road, just south of the Martin County Administration Building.
