With less than two weeks remaining until District 2 voters determine the area’s representative on Statesboro City Council, challengers for the seat had an opportunity to state their cases for election Thursday. Approximately 40 people attended a candidate forum in the Honey Bowen Building, where council hopefuls Sam Jones, Lance Turner and Donald Logan met with constituents and fielded a selection of questions pertaining to current city issues. A seat reserved for incumbent City Councilman Gary Lewis remained empty during the event, as the councilman chose not to participate.
