The Demopolis Area Chamber of Commerce will be hosting a Mayoral Forum on Tuesday, August 11, 7 p.m., at the Demopolis Civic Center. The forum will also be broadcast live on the chamber’s Facebook page and will be broadcast on 106.5 The River radio station.

The forum will be a platform for debate between the candidates for mayor: Aliquippa Allen, Woody Collins, John Laney, and Andy Renner. The candidates running for city council will each give a speech. Candidates for council seats include: District 3, T’keisha Chandler, James Keeley, and David McCants (District 3); District 4, Bill Meador and Louie Padilla; and District 5, Cleveland Cole Jr. and Jim Stanford.

The River 106.5 is providing two hours of free radio time, from 7 to 9 p.m., to broadcast the forum. In addition, the chamber will use this to raise money by letting chamber members purchase one of 10 30-second commercials during the event.
