City Council candidate forum tomorrow in Southwest Atlanta

Nonprofit think tank Georgia STAND-UP will hold the first of two candidate forums for Atlanta City Hall hopefuls tomorrow in Southwest Atlanta.

The organization's spent the better part of 2009 working with more than 160 neighborhood leaders to craft a "community issues platform" that address such issues as public safety, affordable housing, transportation and economic development in Atlanta. Last month, 17 candidates — including mayoral hopefuls Kasim Reed and Mary Norwood — signed on to the platform.

Tomorrow's forum, which is free and open to the public, focuses on all City Council At-Large posts and seats except Districts 2, 5, 6, 7 and 8. Another forum will be held on Oct. 1 for the mayoral and City Council president campaigns.

The forum begins at 5:30 p.m. at the IBEW Auditorium on Pulliam Street. Click here for directions to the event.
