Campbellsville University will host a live political forum Tuesday, May 1 during which candidates for mayor of Campbellsville will be questioned. The forum will be broadcast live on WLCU-TV beginning at 7 p.m. from Ransdell Chapel.
Campbellsville Mayor Tony Young faces former mayor Brenda Allen, Steven Seibech, Patricia “Patti” Phillips, Sharon Hoskins-Sanders and Roger Robertson in the primary on Tuesday, May 22. The two receiving the most votes will face each other in November for the office. Phillips and Hoskins-Sanders are members of city council. Because they are seeking the mayor’s office, neither could run for re-election to the council.
Alex Swanger, a graduating senior who is in Stan McKinney’s MAC 380 persuasion class, is coordinating the event and serving as moderator.
Candidates will be asked a series of questions by a panel of students from Campbellsville University. They will have two to three minutes to answer. Swanger said the public will be asked to submit questions through social media, email and letters.
Mass communication and political science students will be involved with the forum, Swanger said. Read the entire story at:https://www.campbellsville.edu/news/live-political-forum-at-campbellsville-university/
