Florida Matters: Florida Matters - Trade
NPR’s “A Nation Engaged” Coordinated Conversation project is looking at the topic of trade on the campaign trail, and in communities around the country.
As part of that project, this week on Florida Matters (Tuesday, April 19 at 6:30 p.m. and Sunday, April 24 at 7:30 a.m.), we feature a panel discussion on trade policy with Port Tampa Bay CEO Paul Anderson, Florida Small Business Development Center Regional Director Eileen Rodriguez and Michael Schiffhauer, the vice president of international trade and development for Enterprise Florida.
We want to know how trade deals have affected you and your family. Will trade policy influence your vote in the presidential election? We want to hear your thoughts.
Be sure to tell us your first and last name, and where you’re from. We have a few ways for you to weigh in:
· Record a short voice memo using your smartphone and email the audio file to us at FloridaMatters@wusf.org
· Call 813-974-8652 and leave us a brief voicemail
· Write to us at FloridaMatters@wusf.org
· Send a tweet to @FloridaMatters with the hashtag #nprtrade

Tuesday at 6:30 PM | Sunday at 7:30 AM on WUSF 89.7
Monday at 10:00 PM on WSMR 89.1
