The Y LD will be sponsoring a political forum featuring all six candidates for Florida Attorney General — the first time the six have appeared together.YLD President Liz Rice reported to the Bar Board of Governors last month that details of the program were still being worked out, but the candidates — Solicitor General Tom Warner, Sen. Locke Burt, R-Ormond Beach, Education Commissioner Charlie Crist, Sen. Buddy Dyer, D-Orlando, Assistant Atty. Gen. George Sheldon, and Tallahassee Mayor Scott Maddox — had all agreed to appear.“We are excited all six of the Florida Attorney General candidates have committed to participate in the symposium,” Rice said. “We believe the event will provide an invaluable opportunity for local and state Bar leadership to learn more about the candidates and to explore their views and positions on legal issues that may likely be sparked by legislation passed in the aftermath of the tragic events of September 11.”The event will be at the Casa Monica Hotel in St. Augustine.“It is designed to be question-and-answer,” said YLD board member John Stewart, who is organizing the event.Beside the YLD board, other Florida Bar leaders, leaders of local bar associations, and the local state attorney and public defender have been invited. The theme for the gathering is the balance between effective enforcement and civil liberties in the wake of September 11. Other topics may also be raised.
