Let's call this a warm-up.
Last week, we introduced you to the qualifying Pinellas County sheriff candidates. And this week, we are kicking off a weekly invitation to the Patch Podium for a little Q&A. We're asking the candidates a question important to you, the voter, so you can be informed come ballot time.
Consider it our campaign promise that we'll keep this podium going until the candidates' debate at the Unitarian Universalists of Clearwater on July 17 (sponsored by Patch, the National Armed Services & Law Enforcement Memorial Museum and Bay News 9).
This week, we asked:
If elected, how will your past work and life experience contribute to your role as sheriff?
