The public is invited to attend “Cookies and Candidates” a political forum for Democratic candidates running for the House District 7 seat in the Florida legislature on July 12, beginning at 6:30 p.m.
The forum, sponsored by the Wakulla Democratic Executive Committee, will take place at the Wakulla County Public Library. The event will feature statements by each candidate, followed by a series of questions that each candidate will have an opportunity to answer.
Doors open at 6:30 p.m., followed by a brief business meeting at 7 p.m., and candidate forum beginning at 7:30 p.m. Cookies and refreshments will be served.
The three Democratic candidates are Robert Hill, Liberty County clerk of court and county administrator; AJ Smith, captain with the Wakulla County Sheriff’s Office and executive director of the Florida Deputy Sheriffs Association; and Thomas Dickens, attorney, adjunct professor at TCC, and Iraq war veteran. Democratic voters will choose among these three candidates in the August 14 primary election.
Due to redistricting, Wakulla County has now been unified into House District 7. Previously voters in the northern part of the county were in a separate district from the remainder of the county. Now, House District 7 is centered on Wakulla County, and includes all of Franklin, Liberty, Calhoun, and Gulf counties to our west, and all of Jefferson, Taylor, Madison, and Lafayette counties to our east. A small part of Southwest Leon County is also in House District 7.
Please come to this event to meet and hear from the candidates for the Florida House. For additional information about the Wakulla Democratic Party, please visit the websitehttp://wakullademocrats.org.
