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 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.
