Bellevue Elementary and the Church Hill Association hosted a sparsely attended forum for the 7th District School Board candidates this evening. A more well-attended forum that included school board, council, and mayoral candidates took place immediately following at the Powatan Community Center in Fulton.
The 3 school board candidates took questions form the crowd of 25 or so, though nothing new or revelatory came out from either Don Coleman or Torey Edmonds. While Ronald Bond also took questions, it was at times difficult to ascertain his positions. I had recorded this forum, but my phone ate the file in the transfer; a shame, as you really need to hear Mr.Bond speak for yourself.
The 7th district candidates got much less time in Fulton. The school board candidates each gave a short statment but were not given time for questions. Ms.McQuinn was not present due to other pressing issues, but challenger Clarence Keney was there to give a statement.
The mayoral candidates were up next, though I left fairly early into that.
