District 3 Debates

The primary is August 14th, absentee ballots have arrived in mailboxes this week. The Volusia County Council elections are extremely important to the future of our area of the county. District 3 encompasses New Smyrna Beach, Edgewater, Oak Hill, Samsula, much of Port Orange and a few other pieces of the county.

Our candidates include Jim Hathaway (NSB City Commission) Justin Kennedy (Edgewater City Commission) and Deb Denys.

You can meet the local candidates at the Edgewater Landing Clubhouse on Thursday, July 19th at 6:30. Meet them, chat with them and ask questions.

The debate schedule is below:

Saturday, July 21st - Brannon Center, 9:50 am. - Hosted by Headline Surfer
Tuesday, July 24th - Brannon Center, 5:30 pm - Hosted by the Daytona Beach News-Journal

Saturday, August 4th - First Baptist Church, New Smyrna Beach, 7:00 pm - Hosted by Cindy Todd

The candidates will also appear on the Marc Bernier Show on Wednesday, July 25th at 5:00 pm

Whoever you support it is important to understand the issues, how the candidates plan to develop our economy and most important to me what type of person they are. I support Justin Kennedy for our District because I know what he stands for, his economic development plans and what kind of guy he is. I think Jim Hathaway is a pretty nice guy too and I am looking forward to hearing what he has to say at the events mentioned above.

If you have not made up your mind on who to vote for, hitting one of these events is a great way to help you decide.
