The Council of North County Neighborhoods is holding a candidates forum Monday night.

The forum, which is co-sponsored by the Greater Palm Harbor Area Chamber of Commerce, will feature candidates who will appear on north Pinellas ballots in the Aug. 30 election. That election is for party primaries and nonpartisan races.

Pinellas County School Board member Peggy O’Shea said all but one candidate would be at Monday’s event. The CNCN, she said, is still waiting to hear from Robert J. Beal, a last-minute candidate in the race for the District 1 at-large seat on the School Board.

Those who have accepted are Jim Frishe and Mike Twitty, who are running in the Republican primary for Pinellas County property appraiser.

In the nonpartisan races, Dora Komninos and Curtis “CK” Korsko, candidates for County Judge, Group 8 have said they will be at the forum as have Dwight Dudley and Myriam Irizarry, candidates for County Judge, Group 9.

Bill Dudley, Joanne Lentino and Matt Stewart, who are running for the District 1 at-large seat on the School Board, have said they plan to attend. So have Ken Peluso and Eileen Long, who are running for the single-member District 4 seat on the School Board. The District 1 seat is voted on countywide. Only residents of north Pinellas will see the District 4 race on the ballot.

Property Appraiser Pam Dubov will also be there to explain Amendment 4, which would give certain tax exemptions for solar energy improvements.

The event will start at 6 p.m. with a mix and mingle at the Palm Harbor Library, 2330 Nebraska Ave. The forum will begin at 6:30 p.m.
