Redner tries for elective office for a 7th time listen07/07/08 Mitch E. Perry
WMNF Drive-Time News Monday | Listen to this entire show:
Hillsborough County Commissioner Brian Blair finds himself a marked man this year. The former professional wrestler turned GOP local legislator faces Don Kruse in the August primary â€“ and there are three Democrats whoâ€™d love the opportunity to face him in November.
Evironmentalist Dee Layne, financial planner Kevin Beckner, and entrepreneur Joe Redner are also vying for the position. For Redner, itâ€™s his seventh bid for office.
He came closest a year ago, when he lost in a run-off election to incumbent Gwen Miller. WMNF asked Redner if it was tough to come close and still be on the outside looking in.
The three candidates will participate in a forum tomorrow night hosted by the East Hillsborough County Democratic Club at 6:30 p.m. in Brandon, at Giordanoâ€™s restaurant. Thatâ€™s at 11310 Causeway Boulevard.
