Mayoral candidate forum slated for June 16

DORAVILLE, Ga. -- The race is on for the top civic post in Doraville.

There will be a special candidate forum on Thursday, June 16 at the Doraville Civic Center (3770 Central Avenue), where the three candidates will answer residents' questions in an event moderated by former Atlanta Business Chronicle editor Thornton Kennedy.

Carol Gilman, Tom Hart and Donna Pitman will field questions submitted by Doraville residents and business owners. The questions will be accepted in writing from the audience beginning at 6 p.m., with the forum scheduled to begin at 6:30. There will be no verbal questions allowed from the floor.

This will not be a debate; the candidates will address the issues to the moderator and not each other.

The purpose of the forum is to allow Doraville residents to get to know the candidates and hear their positions on the city's top issues.

Voting in the special election will take place Tuesday, June 21. The election is being conducted to select someone to finish the uncompleted term of Mayor Ray Jenkins, who died in February.
