Candidate Forum Monday

Here is a reminder about the candidate forum to be held this Monday, Aug. 28, 7:30pm, Kahler Hall (Harper’s Choice Village Center).

The candidates forum will be on county executive and county council district 4. Here are the candidates:

County Executive:
  • Harry Dunbar (D)
  • Chris Merdon (R)
  • Ken Ulman (D)
  • Steve Wallis (Independent)

County Council, District 4:
  • Tom D'Asto (R)
  • Josh Feldmark (D)
  • Mary Kay Sigaty (D)
  • UNcommon (D)

Questions will be accepted from the audience.

I know a lot of people who read this blog care about how the Columbia’s downtown is redeveloped. The next County Council will the Zoning Board that will be asked to approve any plan and the next County Exec will be in charge of the Department of Planning and Zoning that will have a major role in the design of the plan that is submitted for approval. This forum is the only candidates forum of which I am aware of that will emphasize District 4 (Dorsey Search, Harper's Choice, Hickory Ridge, River Hill, Wilde Lake, and Town Center – as well as parts of Clarksville, Highland, and Fulton), which as you can see is the council seat that includes Town Center. Since the candidates forum also includes the County Exec candidates that means this is a great opportunity for people who live all over the county to come ask those candidates questions. This truly is the public's one opportunity to ask questions of the candidates who will play a big role in our community's future.
