WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:
St. Petersburg voters go to the polls in six days. In addition to Mayor, they will select five City Council members.
During last month’s primary election, voters could only choose from Council candidates in their own district. But during next week’s general election, all St. Petersburg registered voters can vote for all five contested seats.
Today WMNF concludes our series of interviews with all ten candidates for City Council. We look at the District 4 race between incumbent Leslie Curran, and her challenger, Dr. Pamella Settlegoode, who disagrees with the City Council’s second vote on BayWalk when they reversed their previous decision and privatized the sidewalk in front of the failing entertainment complex.
In a St. Petersburg Times/Bay News 9 poll released a week ago, Curran had a 34 percent to 14 percent lead over Settlegoode.
The election is November 3rd and all St. Pete residents can vote in all five district races.
