Manatee County lawmakers to discuss Legislature's session at Herald-SCF public forum

January 18, 2014 

Here's another reminder about our upcoming "Community Conversation" with three members of Manatee County's state legislative delegation. Reps. Jim Boyd and Greg Steube and Sen. Bill Galvano plan to attend the Jan. 23 event at State College of Florida.

Next week's event is the initial offering in a series that the Herald and SCF have designed to allow greater public engagement with community leaders.

Again, we invite the public to not only attend, but to send us your questions and concerns about issues facing the state House and Senate as the Legislature prepares for the March regular session. We'll address as many of your questions as possible during the forum.

Please email those questions in advance to or send regular mail to Editorial Page Editor Chris Wille, 1111 Third Ave. W., Bradenton, FL 34205.

The free and open forum will be held at 7 p.m. Thursday at SCF's Howard Studio Theater, located in Building 11 West on the college's Bradenton campus. Details can be found at

The forum will be broadcast by Manatee Educational Television at later dates.

Bradenton Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
