Statesboro candidate forum set for Tuesday
Placeholder Image
    The Georgia Southern University's Student Government Association will sponsor a forum for Statesboro City Council candidate's Tuesday at the Nessmith-Lane Continuing Education Building on campus. There will be a "meet and greet" with the candidates at 5:30 p.m. giving attendees the chance to informally talk with the candidates over light food and drink. The program starts at 6 p.m.
    After being introduced by moderator Georj Lewis, dean of students at GSU, each candidate will have five minutes to discuss their platform and present their stances on the issues. So far, five of the six candidates have agreed to participate.
    The final hour of the program will consist of questions from the audience. Attendees can write on note cards left on the chairs and give them to the facilitator, who will then choose questions based upon relevance and hand them to the moderator to read aloud. Each candidate will be given a minute or two to answer the question.
