Milledgeville mayoral candidate forum planned for June at Georgia College

A forum for candidates for Milledgeville mayor will be held 7-8:30 p.m. June 11 at Georgia College & State University.

A meet-and-greet with the candidates will follow the event, to be held in Peabody Auditorium.

Three candidates have qualified to run for mayor: Melba Burrell, a business owner; former Mayor Floyd L. Griffin Jr., a funeral home owner; and Gary L. Thrower, a local businessman.

Community members may submit questions for the candidates 5:30-6:30 p.m. at the “Question Booth” in front of the auditorium. Questions also may be submitted on Facebook at www.bit.ly/MvilleMayor15 or using #MvilleMayor15 on Twitter.

The Georgia College American Democracy Project is sponsoring the student-facilitated forum.
