EFSC and Fl TODAY have agreed to hold a forum with Fl House 50 candidate Pam Dirschka and Fl Senate candidate Mel Martin since their opponents Plasencia and Hukill withdrew and the facility and television crews are available.  LWVSC as a non-partisan non-profit will not be a co-host for this event.    Goto and search for candidate forums to replay forums you might have missed.
We are saddened by  Fl Rep Hukill's lost battle with cancer.   Please note her name will still be on the ballots but votes for her will be a vote for replacement GOP candidate Tom Wright.
