Candidates for the Dania Beach City Commission will meet face-to-face with residents at a forum on Tuesday.
The Friends of the Paul DeMaio Library will host the meeting at City Hall, 100 W. Dania Beach Blvd. It starts at 7 p.m.
The field of seven candidates vying for spots on the City’s Commission will answer to the concerns of voters before the upcoming Nov. 6 election.
There are three open seats and two commissioners — Walter Duke and C.K. McElyea — are up for re-election. Commissioner Ann Castro will not run due to term limits.
The other candidates include: Chickie Brandimarte, a community activist and president of the Dania Beach Senior Citizens Club; Bruce Hannover, a member of the airport advisory committee; Bill Harris, a member of the city’s planning and zoning board; Albert C. Jones, a former Dania Beach and Broward County commissioner and Rae L. Sandler, president of the Melaleuca Gardens Homeowner’s Association.
Major points of discussion are expected to be the city’s ongoing battle with Broward County on the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport expansion, property taxes and economic development along the city’s waterfront.
