With standing room only on Saturday September 7, 2019, the Hungry Club Forum of Savannah, Inc. (HCFS) “Harnessing the Power of Collaboration on the issues of today and tomorrow,” kicked off the community’s first look at those who have met the Qualifying requirement to appear on the November 5, 2019 ballot for aldermanic seats on the Savannah City Council. The open forum entitled, “Road to the 2019 City Elections: Part 2 of 3 – Who and What Are on the Ballot and What It Means to You and Yours?” was held in the Multipurpose Room of the WBS YMCA.

Savannah’s premiere community issues forum served up breakfast and its Signature Roundtable and Open Forum. A diverse audience of community leaders, advocates, activists, clergy, neighborhood leaders and other elected and appointed officials took advantage of hearing the candidates present their platforms and views on issues facing the Savannah Area community. Attendees were provided with a unique opportunity to gain a close-up understanding of the candidates’ platforms and profiles. The Open Forum was not a debate, and allowed for questions and comments from the audience. A “Boots-onthe Ground” array of information and hand-outs of pertinent voting information was made available to all in attendance.

Mayoral candidates have been invited to present their platforms on October 5, 2019. The HCFS is a non-partisan educational, cultural enrichment and economic empowerment community issues forum. All candidates are welcome to register, present their platforms and visions for the City of Savannah, and network and fellowship with a representative number of members of the HCFS’ diverse network. For more information, call 912- 927- 8425.
