Forum looks to inform people about upcoming elections
COLUMBIA - With elections in Columbia just weeks away, voters will have the chance to meet candidates and discuss other issues on the ballot Wednesday at an election forum.
The forum will be at the Columbia Public Library.
Mayor Brian Treece and mayoral challenger Chris Kelly will be in attendance. Candidates for the Columbia school board will also be there.
They will have the chance to meet the public and layout their issues.
"One of the things I find really beneficial is to hear the people live in person answering questions. It does tell you a lot about the candidate," said League of Women Voters Treasurer Marilyn McLeod.
She said there will be a moderator at the event and expects about 60 to 80 people to attend.
