Clarksville, TN – The 2014 Political Forums, filmed at Austin Peay State University’s Mass Communication Department, will begin airing this weekend on Channel 9 and 99.
The Forums, brought to you by Leadership Clarksville and the Clarksville Area Chamber of Commerce, are also available to view online at www.clarksvillechamber.com under the ‘News’ tab.Each election year the Forums serve as an opportunity for candidates to voice their goals for the future of the community.
Each candidate is personally invited but no one is obligated to take part in the Forums. At least two parties must be represented for each individual Forum and a single candidate is not allowed to participate alone. This allows for the platform to stay as fair as possible.
Held on September 29, the Forums were for City Council candidates, Mayoral candidates and District State Representative candidates. The following groups were filmed: City Council Wards 1, 6, 7, 10 and 11; City Mayor; Tennessee House District 74.
The City will be holding State and City General elections on November 4th, and early voting will be held October 15th-30th.
Early voting will be held at the Montgomery County Election Office, 350 Pageant Lane, Suite 404. More information about City elections, including a list of qualified candidates, can be found at www.mcgtn.org . Deadline to register to vote in the upcoming election is October 6th.
