Tallahassee, Florida- July 26- 11:42pm
Wakulla Springs, recycling and waste water were three of the many topics talked about by local candidates Thursday night. It was a packed house at Tallahassee City Hall. For about three hours, residents had the chance to throw their best questions about the environment to candidates in races in Tallahassee and Leon County.
The first group up for questioning were the candidates running for city commission seat one. They were each asked what environmental issues they think need attention in our area.
"We have a lot of failing septic tanks around the city that really address some of the problems we have in Wakulla, in our springs, in our drinking water," said Eric Frial, candidate for Tallahassee City Commission.
"Growth management, sprawl, everybody living out in the country, on septic tanks, all of the wonders this city could have if we could contain that sprawl," said Bob Fulford, candidate for Tallahassee City Commission.
"Waste water. It produces phosphorous and nitrogen," said Delaitre Hollinger, candidate for Tallahassee City Commission.
"The protection of our canopy roads, I think that's something that's unique to Tallahassee," said Scott Maddox, candidate for Tallahassee City Commission.
"Public education and personal responsibility," said Daniel Parker, candidate for Tallahassee City Commission.
"The other issue is transportation issues," said Steve Steward, candidate for Tallahassee City Commission.
Voters will hit the polls to decide which candidate will fill that spot on the city commission, and another, on August 14.
There are also a few Leon County Commission seats up for grabs.
