Mayoral candidate forum

I attended the mayoral candidate forum hosted by the Clarke County Republican Party last Saturday evening. I enjoyed conversation along with the barbecue that was provided. The event was held outdoors where the weather stayed pleasant, and the candidates were seated in rocking chairs near a backdrop painted with what looked like a Revolutionary War scene. Hearing the candidates speak only confirmed my observation that making a choice in the mayor's race is going to be difficult because we have a number of qualified and passionate candidates seeking the office. The floor is open for comments here.
