The Hungry Club Forum of Savannah, Inc. (HCFS), “Harnessing the Power of Collaboration on the issues of today and tomorrow,” will hold its monthly forum focusing on “What’s Going On? What If? And What’s At Stake In the Upcoming Elections?”, Saturday August 3, 2019, at 9:30 AM, in the Multipurpose Room of the WBS YMCA, located at 1110 May Street.
Savannah’s premiere community issues forum will serve up breakfast and its Signature Roundtable and Open Forum. After receiving calls and input from a number of HCFS members and other community sources requesting information on election dates and candidates for the upcoming elections (2019 City election and 2020 Primary/General Elections); the Board of Directors has put in motion a series of community exchanges that will take place over the coming months. The HCFS is pleased to offer its format and educational issues forum to help citizens with pertinent and helpful information to assist them in understanding the issues, candidate platforms and election changes and information.
According to Randolph L. Slay, President, HCFS, the forum will cover the period for Qualifying, the elective Seats that will be on the ballot; who are the persons that have already announced their attention to seek election or reelection; what is the election date for each election; and what are the duties of each position holder.
This Open forum will address the issues and platforms that may assist in moving the Savannah-Chatham County area forward, allowing questions, answers and input from those in attendance from the general public. Serving on the Resource Panel will be Clinton Edminster, Starlandia Business and Entertainment District, and Member, Chatham Area Transit Authority; Businesswoman and Attorney Joyce T.
