The Center will be hosting a “Meet the Candidates” Event as part of our “Soiree and Shiraz” Program on Friday, October 14th from 6-8pm. Our Soiree program began two years ago by the generous volunteer efforts of Sissy Quinn, from Anna Maria Island Preservation Trust. We are grateful to her for initiating the group and are working now at The Center to continue to offer stimulating presentations for adults and seniors.
We will be welcoming candidates for Manatee County Commission, School Board, and of course our island cities of Bradenton Beach and Anna Maria. Each candidate will be given 5 minutes to present their viewpoints…an overview of the information presented in the League of Women’s Voters Guide has been recommended. Guests attending will be provided with light refreshments and beer/wine.
Confirmed to attend:
Manatee County Commission, District 3:
Manatee County School Board, District 3:
Dave “Watchdog” Miner
Anna Maria City Commission:
Bradenton Beach City Commission:
We will allow time at the end of the presentations for candidates to mingle and answer any questions in a casual format amongst the crowd. There will be no formal Q&A during the presentations for sake of time.
