Key West, April 11,2016,
Hometown!’s “Call for Candidates”
at Salute Restaurant, Higgs Beach at 5 p.m.
Dear Members, Prospective Members of Hometown!, and all Candidates, Prospective Candidates and Those Merely Testing the Waters:
Please join us on Monday, April 11, 2016, when Key West’s Hometown! will present declared and potential candidates for the upcoming 2016 elections. The event will be held at Salute Restaurant at Higgs Beach in Key West, at 5 p.m. Candidates, declared or potential, will introduce themselves and make short presentations. All candidates are encouraged to bring with them petitions for voters to sign, campaign literature, buttons, T-shirts and other items relating to their campaign. Please bring your own tables for your campaign items. Tables will be set up in the parking lot rather than in the restaurant. Spaces for tables are on a first-come, first served basis.
For those who cannot attend the Call for Candidates, FloridaKeys.com will be recording the event. You can watch the live streamed event on Hometown!’s YouTube channel. The recording will remain on the YouTube channel for those who cannot watch live. The YouTube video will remain available on the same YouTube channel throughout the campaign season.
For a full list of all known candidates and their pictures as well as other campaign information regarding registration and videos of prior Hometown! events and, most important, prior Jenna Stauffer YouTube interviews of the candidates, see our Candidates page. You’ll find direct links to YouTube, all of the other items and much more.
All potential and actual candidates (and those merely testing the waters) wishing to speak at the Call for Candidates Event should contact Hometown! Board Members Mark Bailey (305-304-8690 or firstname.lastname@example.org or Sheldon Davidson (305-295-3560 or email@example.com).
Hometown! aims to promote the exchange of political viewpoints and ideas by providing and sponsoring lectures, forums, debates and other political discourse. These actions will allow the voters to more fully consider the merits of the candidates and their proposals (a) to unite and give voice to residents, and (b) to provide leadership and balance for economic growth.
There is no charge to attend, but we hope that you will join the majority of those interested in good government and our local elections and join Hometown! in 2016. Membership in HOMETOWN! is on a calendar year basis.
