Jennifer Webb holds town hall meeting on small business, environment

in The Bay and the 'Burg/Top Headlines by

Jennifer Webb, the Democratic candidate for Florida House District 69, plans to discuss environmental concerns and issues facing small businesses at a town hall meeting Tuesday.

The 6 p.m. event, hosted by Mary Ann and Gary Renfrow, will kick off at 6 p.m. with a casual meet-and-greet followed by the discussion. The event will be at the Cabana Beach Bar, Alden Suites, 5900 Gulf Blvd., St. Pete Beach.

Appetizers and nonalcoholic drinks will be provided. A cash bar will be available at happy hour prices.

Webb is running against Republican Kathleen Peters, a former South Pasadena mayor seeking her third term in the state House.

Webb, who is making her first run for public office, is the director of community engagement at the University of South Florida. Webb says she is running to represent the interests of working-class families, to champion equitable and fair economic growth, to fund quality public education, and to promote environmental policies that will protect our greatest assets.

Webb’s town hall meeting comes the night before she and Peters are scheduled to face off in their last debate before the Nov. 8 election.

They will square off during a debate from 5:30 to 9 p.m. Wednesday in the Digitorium on the Seminole campus of St. Petersburg College, 9200 113th St. N. (Admission is free, but advance registration is required at solutions.spcollege.edu.)

That debate will be split into four sessions, one for the lone County Commission race, one for the two School Board runoff races, and the other two combining state legislative races whose district borders are relatively contiguous, for the convenience of voters interested in their home district candidates.

The tentative schedule is:

5:30-6:15 p.m.: Pinellas County School Board

6:15- 7:30 p.m.: House Districts 65, 66 and 67

7:30-8 p.m.: County Commission District 3

8-9 p.m.: Senate District 19, House Districts 68, 69 and 70
