Headline Surfer Public Candidate Debates: Heather Post & Al Smith go at it in quest for County Council district 4 seat

Headline Surfer video by Multimedia Editor Serafina Frederick /  Here is the video recording in its entirety of the Headline Surfer Public Candidate Debate for the district 4 County Council seat between candidates Heather Post and Al Smith, easily the most contentious of the three debates held Friday morning, Oct. 21, at the BFFAR (Bikers For First Amendment Rights), 745 Ridgewood Ave. (8th Street), Holly Hill.

HOLLY HILL, Fla. -- If there is one thing certain from the Headline Surfer Public Candidate Debates for the three seats on the Volusia County Council up for grabs in the Nov. 8 general elections, district 4's Heather Post and Al Smith do not like each other one bit and it showed when they were seated next to each other with the moderator to their left and the video camera pointed at them.

It was an ugly display for the duration -- 30:42 -- every second of it captured on video for the voters of district 4, capped off by an ending that will be remembered as priceless: Smith, with a big grin on his face, extends his right arm for a handshake and all he gets in return from Post is a glare - the kind you would see in divorce proceedings.
