Want more information about "Hiring vs. Electing" the Franklin County Public School Superintendent or the proposed 2% Bed Tax increase. Both issues are initiatives on the ballot for voter consideration during the General Election on November 4, and will be topics of discussion at a Political Forum scheduled for 6:30 pm Monday, October 13, 2014 at the Franklin Square Recreation Center located on 6th Street in Apalachicola.
The event hosted by the Hillside Coalition Of Laborers for Apalachicola (H'COLA) will allow the voters of Franklin County the opportunity to pose questions and become aware of how the issue of "Hiring vs. Electing a School Superintendent will impact the future of education in Franklin County and what affect increasing or not increasing the Bed Tax will have on the local tourism industry.
Both candidates, Steve Southerland and Gwen Graham running for U.S. Representative for Florida's 2nd Congressional District were invited to attend the forum, but will be unable to do so because of previous scheduled campaign events in other parts of the state.
The format of the forum will be moderated, with written questions from the audience fielded by the moderator and presented to the representative of the appropriate issue.
