Over 50 attendees participated in a candidate's forum organized by PBCEC and co-sponsored by the Florida Voters League of PBC and PBC Coalition for Immigrant Rights. All of the candidates were invited and all, except District 1 seat Scott Maxwell, promptly confirmed attendance.
All four Candidates that failed to appear at the Forum later issued statements explaining their decisions, which were posted on local internet media site, Lake Worth News, by Jim Stafford:
On Oct 12, 7pm, the PBCEC will be making final decision on endoresments at our monthly meeting held at the Quaker Meeting House, 823 North A Street. We again invite these candidates to explain why the local environmental activist community should take their positions into consideration.
