Valdosta - City Council candidates will share their political plans in a special debate Thursday night.

V.S.U.'s Student Government Association is hosting the event for the city's 5 at large candidates. Richard Stewart, Electa Rickett, David Dempsey, John Eunice, and Ralph Jackson are vying for the position.

Jackson proposed the debate, and says with so many candidates, its important to hear everyone's ideas.  "I think that if you're going to serve the public, you need to be able to get up in front of them and share your ideas," said Jackson.  "The public is the voter, and they need to know what we're thinking."

The debate starts at 7:00 at V.S.U.'s Biology-Chemistry building.
