Episode 21: Haunted Fernandina

Episode 20: Group 2 Candidate for City Commission

This episode is the second episode of our two part series with candidates for Fernandina Beach City Commission.  We are talking with candidate Phillip Chapman at BUYGO.

It was important to us to provide equal time to all candidates for City Commission. We asked the other candidate in Group 2  Tim Poynter, (currently seated on the Council) to interview as well in order to give all candidates fair time but Poynter declined.

Don’t forget to vote on Tuesday Nov. 7th (more information here: https://www.votenassau.com/

Our greatest right and responsibility is voting.  Make your voice heard.
