January 31st– President Trump was elected by a vote of the Electoral College while Hillary Clinton won the popular vote. Is that fair? Our show will focus on explaining efforts to promote ratification of the National Popular Vote Compact, which would permit the election of the U.S. President by direct popular vote, but without a constitutional amendment to void the Electoral College. Our guests from the League of Women Voters will explain the NPV Compact and promote their public engagement program which is scheduled in Tampa for Feb. 20th.
February 7th– Join us for the WMNF Winter Fundraising marathon!
February 14th– Happy Valentines Day! Or, is it? In the first segment of our show, “LOVE HEALS” Tom Scherberger, Dir. of Communications for the Hillsborough County Clerk’s Office will talk with us about the ins and outs of getting married at the Clerk’s Office Marriage Corner, the happiest place in the Courthouse. We also hope to be joined by a lunchtime Courthouse bride who will share her courthouse wedding experience. In our second segment, “LOVE HURTS” we will talk with a Deputy Court Clerk about the process to obtain a Domestic Violence Restraining Order without a lawyer, and we’ll speak with a divorce lawyer about DV Restraining Order complaints, what the courts are looking for and what community resources are available for victims of domestic violence.
