The Pickens Progress will host a city council forum for Jasper candidates October 16th at 6:30 p.m. in the Pickens room (downstairs meetings room) of the Administration Building, 1266 E. Church Street.
Those up for election are Anne Sneve (incumbent) being challenged by Ryan O’Dea; Dr. Sonny Proctor (incumbent completing a partial term) being challenged by Doug Patterson.
Candidates have all indicated they look forward to a chance to address the voters directly and will be there.
The format will begin with moderator Larry Cavender, the Progress’ Ball Ground correspondent, posing some general questions and then letting the audience ask questions.
Advanced voting will take place at the elections office (Pioneer Road) from October 16 through November 3. Voting on election day, November 7, will be at Jasper City Hall.
The Progress is glad to sponsor this forum to give all voters the chance to see the candidates in person and have questions answered.
