The virtual Suncoast Tiger Bay Club meeting was held Aug. 5 and featured a panel discussion with the four candidates running for the Pinellas County Commission District 7 seat. The candidates included:
- Rene Flowers
- Wengay “Newt” Newton
- Frank Peterman Jr.
- Maria Scruggs
During the hourlong discussion, the panelists give brief introductions and share their platforms on issues impacting Pinellas County. They also answer moderator and audience questions about how they will collaborate with commissioners from other parties, their strategies to improve outcomes for the homeless, how they’ll address the impact of Covid-19 on tourism, their opinions on coastal high hazard regulations and their ideas for how the county can better support local schols.
