The Flagler Tiger Bay Club will host back-to-back candidate forums 6-7 p.m. Sept. 23 and 24, moderated by Board Member Howard Holley.
The bi-partisan organization’s first forum will focus on the County Commission sheriff candidates; the second on the Palm Coast mayor and City Council candidates.
While no audience may be in attendance, questions from the community will be asked of participating candidates by a four person bi-partisan panel consisting of Gail Wadsworth (R), Teldra Jones (D), Gary Walsh (NPA) and Walker Douglas (Young Executives).
Partnering with Flagler Broadcasting, the hour-long forums will be livestreamed and available to the public at no cost. Voters are encouraged to tune in to WNZF NewsRadio 94.9 FM, or watch the forums via social media pages on WNZF and Flagler Tiger Bay Club Facebook Live.
“The COVID -19 pandemic has changed the way voters become knowledgeable about candidates for office, hindering voters’ ability to make their best-informed decisions,” said Flagler Tiger Bay Club President Greg Davis.
