City Council Candidate Forums Heat Up



With the November election looming, civic-minded Marco Islanders are turning their attention to the upcoming election for City Council. There are three open seats and four viable candidates: Joe Batte, Litha Berger, Bob Brown and Victor Rios.

These candidates will be making the rounds this month and letting their platforms be heard at local candidate forums. The first will be sponsored by the Marco Island Civic Association (MICA) on Wed., Oct. 8, at 6 PM, at the Rose History Auditorium. MICA representatives will pose questions to all candidates and will take questions from the audience.

The second forum is sponsored by the Marco Island Area Chamber of Commerce and the Marco Island Area Association of Realtors, and will be held Friday, Oct. 10, from 5-7 PM, in the Marco Island Community Room at 51 Bald Eagle Drive. Dick Shanahan will moderate this forum.

Come out for these forums, and become a more informed voter.
