In mid-July, the citizen's group Campaign for Atlanta held a two-day series of forums with Atlanta mayoral candidates Lisa Borders, Mary Norwood, Kasim Reed and Jesse Spikes at the Carter Center.
Topics covered during the events included Department of Watershed Management issues, creating and maintaining a competent city bureaucracy and police and fire issues. Candidates were grilled by civil engineer Bob Bunker, Georgia Tech Professor Jim Martin, former Fulton County Manager Sam Brownlee, former Atlanta Deputy Police Chief Lou Arcangeli and former Atlanta Fire Chief David Chamberlin.
The 32 videos, grouped by candidate remarks and responses, are available on Campaign for Atlanta's website. We've also uploaded each candidate's opening remarks after the jump.
