Share

Our first guest was Carrie West is the director of Tampa Pride 2015. It’s the first LGBT event in Tampa in over a decade, and a bit of a milestone considering the hostility of previous measures enacted by the Hillsborough County Commission.

Pat Kemp then joined us. Kemp narrowly lost a bid for Hillsborough County Commission in 2014, and has already announced her candidacy in 2016. We talked about the recent Tampa City Council District 6 race, as well as the 2016 U.S. Senate race.
