The Clarke County Republican Party will hold a mayoral candidate forum at 6:30 p.m. on Saturday, 28 August, at the Party’s headquarters office located at 445 North Milledge Avenue.
District 9 Commissioner Kelly Girtz and Probate Court Judge Susan Tate (pending the blessing of the Judicial Qualifications Commission) have agreed to moderate the forum.
The event will be styled as an outdoor, old-fashioned political BBQ - with pork, chicken, hamburgers and hotdogs provided for those in attendance. The rest of the menu remains under construction, but will no doubt include banana pudding from The BBQ Shack - arguably the best dessert in Athens for this type of gathering (or any other for that matter).
The format will be a series of pre-screened questions for each candidate, meaning different questions for each candidate - not the same question for each candidate - which typically gives the rest of the field time to formulate an answer and result in monotony. The program will conclude with a 2-3 minute "stump speech" by each candidate, the order of which will be determined at random in a drawing conducted by Judge Tate.
Candidates who qualified for the office of mayor are:
