With the critical midterm elections fast approaching, the Tampa Tiger Bay Club is turning its attention to the future of politics with an upcoming forum featuring young Tampa Bay politicians.

Brittany Lakhani, president of the Young Republicans of Tampa Bay, and Michael Womack, president of the Young Democrats of Hillsborough County, will offer their perspective on what motivates young voters this election.

Her focus is on advancing LGBTQ+ issues with experience in campaign work at the state and national level.
