The purpose of this page is to give you an opportunity to learn more about the candidates who will be on the ballot on November 6. The Voter Information Committee will sponsor a forum for Executive Council candidates.  Debates and forums for the statewide candidates are available on television and radio, as below.  Items will be added as they become available.  Scroll way down to learn about Hillsborough County candidates.  Finally, I have just added to the very bottom of this page links to the websites of the candidates for Executive Council and State Senate, all of whom were invited to appear at RiverMead forums.

Because county candidates are often ignored, I decided to try to find out something about each one. Some had relevant web pages, but it was hard to find information about others.  I tried to choose the link that would give you the most information about each one, but you should do your own searches if you are not satisfied with what I found.
