I attempted to find out yesterday if the events will be televised on Coral Gables TV, but was unsuccessful. All I could learn is that they haven’t decided yet. (I sure hope so – I’m going to be out of town on the 9th; anyone available to video it for me if need be?)
There will also be a Coral Gables Chamber of Commerce event, held on
the UM Campus a location TBA, but according to the charming lady who answers their phone, they haven’t set a date yet. When they do, it will appear either on the front page of their web site or events page. Last time it was in the fieldhouse on the UM campus.
Coral Gables television will be filming all three Coral Gables Forum debates. The first debate (Group V) will be replayed this Wednesday, Friday & Saturday. The times are on the City’s website.
