Albany candidates forum set for Saturday

ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Albany Ward I Commissioner Jon Howard issued an open letter Friday, inviting the citizens of Albany to a candidates' forum Saturday morning.

Howard's letter said: The November 5th General Election is just around the corner. We will be electing City Commissioners from Ward 2 and 3.  For a sneak preview of candidate's platforms and their perspectives, you will not want to miss this special Town Hall meeting.

Concerned voters will meet and socialize with candidates seeking local political offices. However, we as informed voters should try to learn as much as possible about the candidates before the November 5th General Election.  If possible, please invite neighbors, friends and concerned voters to the meeting and get involved with community issues.

The meeting will be held at the Law Enforcement Center/Albany Police Headquarters, located at 201 West Oglethorpe Blvd. on Saturday, October 26, 2013.  

It will begin promptly at 10:00 a.m.. and will be approximately 1½ hours in length.

Attached is a tentative agenda with the name of candidates who have been invited to participate in our meeting. Please mark your calendar and plan to join me on October 26th. 

Sincerely,

Jon Howard
City Commission - Ward 1

 

  Candidates for Ward 2

  1. Bobby Ray Coleman – N/A
  2. Ivey Hines
  3. Demetrius Love

 

Candidates for Ward 3

  1. Cheryl Calhoun
  2. B. J. Fletcher
  3. Christopher Pike

 Each candidate will make a seven minute presentation about their platform. Because of time, audience information through questions or comments will be solicited after the meeting has been adjourned. One candidate speaks at a time and courtesy is extended to all candidates and speakers, even when you personally disagree with their point of view on issues.
