Forum for City Council candidates tomorrow night at 7

Candidates for the Midway City Council in the Nov. 8 election will participate in a forum at Midway University at 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 13.

The six council seats are being sought by seven people, all of whom have agreed to participate: Council Members Steven Craig, Kaye Nita Gallagher, Sara Hicks, Bruce Southworth and Libby Warfield, and non-incumbents Steve Simoff and John McDaniel II. Council Member Dan Roller is not seeking re-election.

The forum will be held in the Duthie Auditorium in the Anne Hart Raymond Building. It is sponsored by the Midway Women’s Club and the Woodford County Chamber of Commerce. A reception for candidates and the public will be held in the lobby from 6 to 7 p.m.

Each candidate will get three minutes to introduce themselves, then all candidates will have two minutes to answer questions submitted by community members. Questions for the candidates can be emailed to Don Vizi at the Chamber of Commerce: woodforddirector@gmail.com.

Another forum with the same schedule and format will be held Thursday, Oct. 20, for higher offices. Invited are U.S. Sen. Rand Paul and his Democratic challenger, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray; U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, Democratic challenger Nancy Jo Kemper, state Rep. James Kay and Republican challenger Daniel Fister. Those who had responded favorably as of Oct. 1 were Kemper, Kay and Fister.

Candidates (and their supporters) should refrain from putting flyers on the bulletin board in the Post Office, as it violates their regulations.
