Hillsborough County Commission Candidate Speaks to WMNF by Mitch E. Perry

07/21/06

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 – who just returned to work with the Commission this week after taking time off after heart bypass surgery – will face Democrat Joe Redner in the fall.

But there’s another candidate in the race: (J) Yamel Christina Arronte, running as an independent. The local Tampa native bills herself as a “Local Lady For Local Government�…She’s also a veteran, having served in the Army from 1989 thru 1993.

Jamel visited WMNF in our studios this afternoon….We began our conversation by asking her – why does she now want to run for elective office? (roll tape#1 o.q.�get a gallon of milk�)

That’s (J)Yamel Christina Arronte, running as an Independent candidate for the District 5 Countywide seat, currently held by Republican Jim Norman….Joe Redner is the Democratic candidate in the race. To learn more about her candidacy, go to the web at Arronte2006.com
