Group: Elect Hillsborough commissioners a new way

WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:

Four of the Hillsborough County Commissioners represent districts within the county; the other three are elected countywide.

But some community activists hope to change that.

The publisher of La Gaceta newspaper, Patrick Manteiga, told WMNF 10 community activists met at his office last night to discuss placing a referendum on either the 2008 or 2010 ballot that would make all seven county commissioners represent single-member districts within the county.
