Tybee Island holding mayoral candidate forum

TYBEE ISLAND, Ga. (WTOC) - Tybee Island is picking its next mayor this year.

The candidates will speak at a forum next week. Those who have qualified are councilwoman Wanda Doyle, businessman Mack Kitchens, and councilwoman Shirley Sessions.

The mayoral forum will be on Monday, Sept. 30 at 7 p.m. at the Burke Day Public Safety Building. The event is free to attend but they ask that you register online here for a headcount.

“We are very close to the election. That’s why it is important to have resources to learn more about the candidates and learn quickly,” said Joyce McDonald, Communications Director, National League of Women Voters. “We know people are pressed for time. That’s why our website is so valuable at pinpointing issues the candidates feel strongly about, and of course, the forum, hearing directly from the candidates is crucial.”
