Legislators to update north Pinellas residents on 2015 Legislative Session

in The Bay and the 'Burg by

The Council of North County Neighborhoods (CNCN) has an informal get together with north Pinellas state legislators scheduled for 7 p.m. tonight at the East Lake United Methodist Church, in Palm Harbor.

The CNCN, with its informal get together, hopes to shine some light on how the Florida Legislature’s 2015 Regular Session results will effect north Pinellas County.

All area legislators, like state Sen. Jack Latvala and Reps. Chris Sprowls and James “J.W.” Grant were invited to the gathering. Those legislators in attendance are expected to share insight on the process of government, as well as where the 2015 Legislative Session’s winners and losers lie — especially in regards to north Pinellas.

This year, a Special Session was held from June 1 to June 19, so Legislature could agree on and pass a budget and related implementing bills — an issue which both legislative chambers failed to resolve throughout their 60-day regular session, which ended on May 1.

A moderator led conversation with the legislators will kick things off at tonight’s CNCN sponsored get together. An “open mic” segment, where the public will be able to ask questions, will follow. The gathering is considered a public meeting and open to anyone who would like to attend.

The East Lake United Methodist Church is located at 2801 East Lake Road, in Palm Harbor.
