Another challenger puts her hat in the ring to lead Hillsborough Democrats by Mitch E. Perry12/08/06
Next week, the Hillsborough County Democratic Executive Committee will vote to select its next Chairperson, replacing Janee Murphy.
There will be many challenges for local Democratic head Ã¢â‚¬â€œ After last monthÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s election, there is now only 1 Democrat on the County Commission. Democrats were also unsuccessful in defeating Ronda Storms in the District 10 State Senate race.
Last night we interviewed Michael SteinbergÃ¢â‚¬Â¦Tonight, another candidate we speak to is Pat Kemp. Kemp has been hired by Congresswoman-elect Kathy Castor to act as a community liason in the 11th District.
Kemp is also the wife of WMNFÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Program Director, Randy Wynne. There will be a number of challenges in trying to resuscitate the local Democratic Party in Hillsborough. WMNF asked Kemp, why she wants to take on this job (roll tape#1 o.q.Ã¢â‚¬?thatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s what we have to doÃ¢â‚¬?)
ThatÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Pat Kemp, Community Liason for Congresswoman-elect Kathy Castor, and a candidate for the Hillsborough CountyÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Democratic Executive Committee Chair.
WMNF has made contact with the 2 other candidates in the race: Mike Suarez, and Bob Keenen. They have not returned that contact at this time,.
