Here are LAKE videos of
the candidates running in the November general election at
“Meet the Candidates”
by the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce September 27th 2016.
It seemed less attended than usual, but that may have been due to the larger venue
of Mathis Auditorium dwarfing the audience.
Each got a few minutes to say something, and nobody took questions.
There were tables with information before they spoke.
“Come meet and hear from the candidates running in the November general election,”
says the Chamber, and this is usually the best-attended candidate forum.
This is not a debate. Each candidate gets a few minutes to say something, and nobody takes questions.
However, they also have tables with information and you can usually catch them before or after.
When: 5-7PM Tuesday September 27th 2016
Where: Mathis City Auditorium

Here are LAKE videos of
the candidates forum at the Rainwater Conference Center
organized by the Valdosta-Lowndes County Chamber of Commerce.
In the one remaining County Commission race, for District 3,
Tom Hochschild made opposition to the Sabal Trail pipeline
a platform plank,
Mark Wisenbaker mentioned his opposition to
the county’s lawsuit against local business Deep South Sanitation (DSS).

opposed to that pipeline, so we may get some change on the County Commission
Cary Scarborough of DSS was at this forum, as were many pipeline opponents.
Bikram Mohanty wins special mention for best use of the
VSU students Hochschild brought.
