No Rebuttals in Brookhaven's First Mayoral Forum

Brookhaven's very first mayoral candidate forum went out without a hitch last night.

Brookhaven's first ever mayoral debate concluded on Wednesday night before 9 p.m. without a single rebuttal.

The forum, hosted by the Ashford Park Civic Association and the Drew Valley Civic Association, took place at Ashford Park Elementary at 7 p.m. Wednesday. About 70 people attended the event and about a dozen of them asked questions of the candidates.

The three candidates– Larry Danese, J. Max Davis and Sandy Murray–were permitted to offer a rebuttal if another candidate mentioned them by name during a response to any question.

However, that never happened and in fact, the candidates often found points on which to agree.

"I thought it went really well," said Erica Mymudes, treasurer for the APCA. "I was happy there were no personal attacks. I'm very excited to be a part of it."

Attached are the closing statements from each of the mayoral candidates. Brookhaven Patch will continue to bring you updates about the forum throughout the day.

I have heard your phony lines before many times, about who you will vote for Why don't you address the issue, were all candidates there and on the take or not? I have yet to hear of any candidates who left the Dunwody meeting. So they are all on the take according to your perverted mind set.

Ms. Just Wondering, I am voting for J. Max Davis and Rebecca Chase Williams so that we can have leaders of this new city that will give us what we deserve. Mayor, would you like some more yellow mustard with that chili?

UNPRETENTIOUS! Are you kidding me. The 10% of the population that successfully hijacked this whole cityhood ordeal an d now gloats about it are the most arrogant people I've heard of. Can't wait to see how this Utopian village turns out with all these new politicians To join all the others allready there. Jmax and J mike aren't doing this for their health, wait a minute yes they their personal hea 'll th and fortune. Wonder how friends of J max and J mike get contracts to do business in Edenhaven. The cliff is just over the hill.

If the consumer is working from innacurate information I would rebutt that information and I don't think that would conflict with the idea of consumer choice. Would you? http://wallinside.com/inside.php?ewall=sales-rebuttals-review
