…or is that Fora? Anyway, based on emails and comments to my earlier posting on the elections, here’s what I think I know about the schedule for candidate debates for the 2013 Coral Gables Commission and Mayoralty elections:
Ponce Business Association. To be held at Coral Gables Congregational Church. Doors open 6:45; debate starts at 7pm.
- Thursday 3/7 Group 3 Commission seat
- Thursday 3/14 Group 2 Commission seat
- Thursday 3/21 Mayoral candidates
Latin Builders Association, 3/22 location Cancelled
Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce. University of Miami, Bank United Fieldhouse Tuesday 3/26 6pm. All races. They say they are inviting questions to be sent to email@example.com.
Unfortunately, I’m going to miss the Group 3 debate on 3/7 because I’ll at an academic conference. If someone reading this — who is not affiliated with any of the campaigns — is planning to go and would like to volunteer to do a guest posting, please get in touch.
Meanwhile, my emails to candidates asking for issues statements has only borne partial fruit. Looks like I may need to follow up with actual phone calls….
I have heard that Jim Cason has declined to attend an Latin Builder’s Association candidate forum that was to have taken place on Friday, March 22 at lunch time. Guess he’s too busy to voice his own opinions in a candidate forum.
Does anyone know where this event is and whether it is open to the public? I called the LB and left a message, but no one called back.
