Eggers Vs Hackworth for City Mayor

Dunedin Patch caught up with candidates for mayor — Dave Eggers, incumbent, and Bob Hackworth, former mayor — so you could get a better sense of who they are and what they stand for.

Voters, it's time to meet your candidates for city mayor.

Former mayor Bob Hackworth is challenging incumbent Dave Eggers.

We caught up with both of them so you could get a better sense of who they are and what they stand for. 

Meet them here:

The city elections are on Nov. 6, alongside the presidential election.

We'll also be checking in with the candidates weekly on the Patch Podium, asking them questions on city issues that matter most to you.

Have a question for the candidates that you'd like us to consider for the Patch Podium? Let us know in the comments or email editor Katie Dolac at kathryn.dolac@patch.com.

Since we live in a waterfront/fishing community, does either canidate plan to reverse the silly violation for parking your boat in your driveway, other than weekends?

A good story ! Publix doesnt build one store on top of another,Originally multi story buildings and large area structures were on the property and taxed as such on the site. The buildings have been demolished and its now taxed as vacant land.

A funny ironic day today the same City administration that turned down federal funds for a bike trail on Pinehurst Rd are the same folks sending the Parks and Rec Director out soliciting funds from Dunedin civic clubs for a new 32 passenger bus .

Mr. Hackworth, since Mr. Eggers has taken office 4 years ago, 12 people that I know of, there could be more, have been laid off at the City. Now these people are standing in the unemployment line and he could care less! He brags about not raising taxes and his accomplishments without cositing the tax payers money. Instead what he's doing is taking these peoples salaries and using THAT for his accomplishments! This is still tax payers money, it's just a loophole he found! What angers me the most is the white collar workers, the upper and middle management are seeing the most benefit from this, they say they have "extra responsibilities" so they recieve a 5% pay raise. In reality, the ones that recieve this 5% for "extra responsibilities" just pass the work load onto the blue collar workers who are out there 8 to 10 hours a day in adverse weather conditions doing all the labor! These blue collar workers only get a 1% pay raise which is not even seen on the paycheck and they are the ones that make Dunedin run like clockwork! These blue collar workers can't even afford to pay thier electric bills! Do you see the fairness in this?? Morale is at an all time LOW! If you can change this, you've got my vote! I don't think Mr. Eggers realizes just how many of HIS employees live and work in Dunedin! But, the records show he could care less and has no problem sending ANYBODY to the unemployment line! Any response Mr. Hackworth?
