Who is Tommy White?
September 4, 2006
Donovan’s companion on the WSRE debate was Tommy White.
White ran for city council 2004 – District 6. In the primary, he placed dead last. Jewel Canada-Wynn:1,277. Charlie Fairchild: 1,002. Tracy Richardson 491. White only got 273 votes – the lowest votes total of anyone running for the city council that year. Jewel soundly beat Fairchild in the runoff.
White chose not to run against Jewel this year.
Let’s get this straight. The pro park side has Rev. Hugh King, Florida Black Chamber president Eugene Franklin,the Gulf Coast African American Chamber of Commerce, WRNE owner Robert Hill, Commissioner Marie Young, Councilman Ron Townsend and Councilwoman Jewel Canada Wynn (who got 4 times the votes that White did).
SOC has Mr. White.
Who will the African-American community listen to more?
