FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
MILTON CITY COUNCIL CANDIDATES FORUM
Be an informed citizen. Mark your calendar for Oct. 9th!
The League of Women Voters of Atlanta-Fulton County will sponsor a Candidates Forum involving six Milton candidates for three city council seats. The event will be held on Tuesday, October 9, 2007, 7:30 - 9:30pm, at the Birmingham United Methodist Church, 15770 Birmingham Hwy. Following the Forum, citizens and candidates will have an opportunity to meet face-to-face in the Church courtyard.
Three of the six Milton City Council seats will be contested on the November 6th municipal election. Since council members serve in an "at large" capacity, it is important to note that the election is open to all City of Milton Voters, who will vote for their choice in all three district races.
District 2: Julie Zahner Bailey, Incumbent; Roger Santi, Challenger
District 4: Neal O'Brien, Incumbent; Burt Hewitt, Challenger
District 6: Rick Mohrig, Incumbent; Alan Tart, Challenger
This impartial and non-partisan event is sponsored and structured by the League. It is not a debate. A moderator will ask questions that will be submitted by the League. It is seen as an opportunity for candidates to express themselves on a variety of public interests and for citizens to become informed voters.
In addition to the League of Women Voters, co-sponsors of the event include Birmingham United Methodist Church, Wachovia Bank, Milton Herald, My Sister's Gifts, and Scottsdale Farms.
