On the Radio
There's more than just the contest for president and local races on the ballot in November. There will be 11 proposed amendments to the Florida Constitution. And every single one was put there by lawmakers in Tallahassee.
A panel discussion was recently held at St. Petersburg College in Seminole. We'll hear from Tara Newsom, professor of Social and Behavioral Science, St. Petersburg College; Aaron Sharockman, a political editor at the Tampa Bay Times; Tony Carvajal of the Collins Center for Public Policy in Tallahassee; and Judithanne Scourfield McLauchlan, a political science professor at USF St. Petersburg. The moderator is Frank Alcock, a professor of political science at New College of Florida.
