Candidates for Richmond Hill City Council take part in forum

RICHMOND HILL, GA (WTOC) - Candidates for Richmond Hill City Council seats took part in a forum on Oct. 27. The Chamber of Commerce invited the candidates to take questions and talk to the voters.

"Sometimes in local elections, I don't think the candidates get an opportunity to really state their platforms and for the general public to meet them. So, we just want to give them a conduit for that purpose," said Robbie King, Richmond Hill Chamber of Commerce.

Challengers Jan Bass and John Fesperman took advantage of the opportunity. Incumbents Jimmy Hires and Marilyn Hodges said that they had other events and could not make it to the forum. Elections are on Nov. 8.
