New Port Richey Patch hosted a town-hall style forum on Wednesday to give residents a chance to ask the seven city council candidates questions on the important issues.
If you missed the event while it was happening, we've got the full video of all candidates' responses and questions from the community.
All seven city council candidates attended the event and answered questions on topics ranging from public safety to economic development plans.
We’d like to thank the City of New Port Richey for helping us with the forum by offering us a venue. We’d also like to thank the Greater New Port Richey Main Street organization and New Port Richey Parks and Recreation Department for promoting this event.
A huge thanks also goes out to Pasco historian Jeff Cannon, who moderated the forum on behalf of Patch.
The elections are being held April 9. There are two open seats.
The candidates present at the forum were:
- Bob Langford
- Michael J. Malterer
- Ginny Miller
- Rose Mohr
- Jeffery Starkey
- Jonathan Tietz
- Chopper Davis
Check back with Patch for continuing coverage of the city elections.
