Local Candidate Forum Held at Lazy Hiker Brewing

The Six Candidates for Alderman
Last night, at The Lazy Hiker Brewing Company, six candidates participated in a forum where the questions were solicited via Social Media by David Linn. Linn organized the event to appeal to younger voters in Franklin and arranged for The Lazy Hiker Brewing Company to host the forum on their property.

About 30 or so people attended the forum and these people mingled with the candidates before and after the event.

A video of the entire forum has been posted below so those of you who could not attend to be able to see and hear for yourselves first hand, without being filtered through a reporter or editor. A couple of photos are below the video.

-note- There were segments of the video during which noise from a landscaping crew at the Wells Fargo Bank using weed eaters and leaf blowers overwhelmed the forum. I apologize for the inconvenience.

If you receive value from what Macon Media provides to the community, please consider becoming a supporter and contribute at least a dollar a month.

In September 2015, 13 people pledged $75.00 and 9 followed through with $55.00. If you have pledged to support Macon Media and have updated your bank card, you need to update your info on Patreon in order for your pledge to be accepted by Patreon and then transferred to Macon Media.

You can find out more information on how to do that and some of what I plan to accomplish if I reach certain levels of funding at my crowd funding page.
