Brookhaven Mayoral Candidate Forum Set for Wednesday

Just before tuning into the first 2012 presidential debate, head over to the first Brookhaven mayoral candidate forum and get your questions answered. Know before you vote!

After hosting a District 2 candidate forum Thursday, the Ashford Park Civic Association and the Drew Valley Civic Association are teaming up again to host a mayoral candidate forum on Wednesday.  

The Brookhaven Mayoral candidates– Larry Danese, J.Max Davis, Sandy Murray and Thom Shepard– have agreed to take questions from voters from 7 to 9 p.m. at Ashford Park Elementary at 2968 Cravenridge Drive. Chamblee Councilman Tom Hogan will moderate the forum.

“With the low primary turnout, our goal was to inspire voters by making information more accessible. Providing a venue where you could not only meet, but ask questions of all four candidates in one place at one time– making an informed decision couldn’t be easier,” stated APCA Treasurer Erica Mymudes in a release.

More than 100 voters attended Thursday’s District 2 candidate debate, also hosted at Ashford Park Elementary. The attendees asked a variety of questions.

“While curiosity briefly arose about Yes City/No City leanings, the focus turned more towards experience, police, reality of budgets and sustainability of resources,” Mymudes stated.

A video of the forum will be uploaded to YouTube later this week. Brookhaven Patch will post it as soon as it’s available.

Kiri, this Wednesday October 3rd? If so, it seems like a "quick" public announcement. Also, being on the same night of the Presidential debate, it will be interesting to see what the turnout will be. Are future Brookhaven mayoral debates planned? Thank you.

Hi, E Pluribus, this forum was announced a while ago: http://brookhaven.patch.com/articles/brookhaven-candidates-to-participate-in-2-debates I just posted this as a reminder. I'll keep you all updated on any future mayoral debates that are planned.

I am going to see David Byrne and St. Vincent perform songs from their new collaborative album as well as their respective hits with a 8 piece Brass section, so unfortunately I will not be able to attend this forum. http://lovethisgiant.com/better-together-david-byrne-and-st-vincent-take-the-stage-for-their-first-new-york-show/#.UGtRN1H4I44 Maybe someone could ask them to commit to keeping signs on owner approved property, at least until the week before the election. I was disappointed to see candidate signs on Ashford Dunwoody along the golf course.

Which debate will I go and watch? Obama-Romney or Four Mayors for Brookhaven? I guess I could leave early.

For anyone who attended the Four minus One to have Three Mayors for Brookhaven debate last night, how did it go? What were your impressions of the candidates?
