July 2018 Hometown! Q&A

Don’t miss Hometown’s last Candidate Q&A Forum of the 2018 election year on Monday, September 17th! This important event will feature candidates for U.S. Representative, State Representative, Monroe County Commission Districts 2 and 4, Mosquito Control District 2, Key West Utility Board Seat D, and Key West Mayor.

Join us at a new venue, the Grand Ballroom of the DoubleTree Resort/Grand Key, 3990 S. Roosevelt Blvd., Key West, where doors will open to voters at 5:00pm. As always, this Hometown event includes complimentary hors d’oeuvres, a cash bar, and the opportunity to mingle with candidates before the forum begins promptly at 5:30pm. Witness candidates make last-ditch efforts to enlist the support of voters in the November 6th general election. You won’t want to miss this—and bring a friend! There will be plenty of free parking.

Panelists for this Q&A Forum are US1 Radio News Director Bill Becker, WLRN Reporter Nancy Klingener, and two members of the Key West Citizen Editorial Board: community leader and philanthropist Matthew Helmerich, and Attorney Jennifer Hulse Russo. They will pose questions to the following candidates (order to be determined):
