ED AUSTIN FOR COUNTY COMMISSIONER - Mitch Perry06/24/04
Earlier this month, former Tampa City Councilman Bob Buckhorn announced his entry into the race for the Democratic nomination for Hillsborough County Commission, District 6 -the seat that Jan Platt is stepping down from this November.
Tonight WMNF interviews 2 men who are also vying to replace Jan Platt.
Ed Austin is a Democrat running against Bob Buckhorn this August....WMNF referenced the recent discussion on an Anti-Nudity Ordinance resolution that went down to defeat earlier this month (roll tape#1 o.q."in the community that need it")
That's Ed Austin, running for the Democratic nomination for Hillsborough County Commission, District 6, which is a County Wide Seat....
Also running to succeed Commissioner Platt next November is Brian Becker, running on the Green Party Ticket.....WMNF spoke with him this morning well, about his candidacy, and asking how - as a 3rd Party candidate, he expected to beat the Democrats AND Republicans this year (roll tape#1 o.q. "more wildlife")
That's Brian Becker, Green Party candidate for Hillsborough County Commissioner in District 6,.Because he is running un-opposed in August, County voters will not get a chance to consider his candidacy until the November ballot.
