All eight candidates have been invited to participate in this non-partisan community forum to share their positions and visions for the community. Each candidate will be asked the same questions in random order on fiscal, greenspace, transportation and public safety issues. They also will be given time for brief closing remarks. To maintain impartiality, the event will be moderated by a professional who is not a Dunwoody resident.
“Our members identified this opportunity to provide a needed community service by facilitating a non-partisan event to educate the residents of Dunwoody,” said Anne West, church member and church council chair. “We are delighted that the candidates see the importance of presenting themselves to the community in this impartial format.”
“While we as a church certainly don’t endorse any one candidate or viewpoint, we do want to do our part to help the community,” said the Rev. B. Wiley Stephens, senior pastor. “Whether we’re helping others through a program like Hear the Candidates, our Great Day of Service outreach ministry or selling pumpkins to support our youth programs, we are committed to serving this community.”
The public is invited to attend the free event, which will be in the church fellowship hall on the second floor of the activity building. The church is at 1548 Mount Vernon Road, just west of Chamblee Dunwoody Road.
