Presented by AARP and Spectrum, Popcorn, Pints & Politics offered members an opportunity to engage in informal conversations with 15 City Council and Mayoral candidates. While enjoying 3 Daughters pints, popcorn and appetizers from Urban Brew & BBQ, attendees were able to walk around and mingle as they moved from table to table, speaking to each candidate.
Members participated in a straw poll that asked them to rank the candidates' strengths on the issues important to the Chamber. The results of the straw poll can be seen here.
In addition to this event, the Chamber has launched an online resource for members to learn more about the candidates. Visit St. Petersburg Election Season 2017 to view candidate profiles which include their campaign video and their answers to a questionnaire regarding the Chamber's strategic priorities.
