Hillsborough County Commission Candidate Speaks to WMNF by Mitch E. Perry
One of the more interesting local races this fall promises to be the Hillsborough County Commission seat held by the Republican incumbent, Chairman Jim Norman.
Norman â€“ who just returned to work with the Commission this week after taking time off after heart bypass surgery â€“ will face Democrat Joe Redner in the fall.
But thereâ€™s another candidate in the race: (J) Yamel Christina Arronte, running as an independent. The local Tampa native bills herself as a â€œLocal Lady For Local Governmentâ€?â€¦Sheâ€™s also a veteran, having served in the Army from 1989 thru 1993.
Jamel visited WMNF in our studios this afternoonâ€¦.We began our conversation by asking her â€“ why does she now want to run for elective office? (roll tape#1 o.q.â€?get a gallon of milkâ€?)
Thatâ€™s (J)Yamel Christina Arronte, running as an Independent candidate for the District 5 Countywide seat, currently held by Republican Jim Normanâ€¦.Joe Redner is the Democratic candidate in the race. To learn more about her candidacy, go to the web at Arronte2006.comcomments powered by Disqus
