Videos: APA Candidate Forum 2015-10-06

The VSU Alpha Phi Alpha fraternity, 100 Black Men of Valdosta, and the Valdosta-Lowndes Metro Section of the National Council of Negro Women held a candidate forum at Mathis City Auditorum on October 6th 2015: here are LAKE videos. The the Valdosta Daily Times provided some background:

“Each candidate will be given three minutes to describe themselves, their platform and why they’re seeking their position,” [Valdosta City Council member Alvin] Payton said. “We will then allow two minutes for each candidate to answer a minimum of two questions from the floor. Some questions can be answered quicker than others. After those two minutes, each candidate will be given two minutes to wrap up their position.”

The forum will only involve candidates running for Valdosta City Council and the position of Valdosta mayor.

Below are links to the LAKE video each candidate forum section, followed by a video playlist.

Here’s a list of all qualified candidates. Candidates not appearing in this APA forum: Vivian Miller-Cody, City Council District 1, Dallas Bennett, City Council District 5, Ben H. Norton, City Council At-Large.
