Tonight there will be a debate at the Preston Williams Center in Montezuma for seats on the Montezuma City Council, as well as the office for Mayor.
Incumbent Willie J. Larry is facing a tough challenge from LaVonda Bush-Journey.
Incumbent City Councilmen Charles Ivey & Norman Carter seats are up as well as Jim Trask, who decided not to seek re-election.
Challenging for the three seats are:
Tarshea Fudge-Riley who narrowly lost by a razor-thin margin in her first bid for council back a few years ago.
Frank Lester, who lost his seat last time around & is looking to get back on the city council this time around
And you have first time candidates Beau Palmer, Judy Hasselkus & Judy "Dee" Gilmore
All Council seats are elected citywide...
Issues likely to dominate the forum are: 1) The future of manufacturing plant Allens, Inc. 2) The contined rising cost of water/sewage rates that are plaging the citizens of Montezuma, with no answer as to why were the water/sewage rates were increased in the first place. 3) Economic Develpoment. 4) Transparency in City Government, etc, etc, etc
