Forums Tonight on Charter Schools, Congress, DA Race

Correction: This story originally listed an incorrect time for charter-amendment meeting in Warner Robins. It begins at 6 p.m.


The election season is in full swing tonight in Central Georgia.

And if you're still making up your mind on the questions and the races, there are three events tonight that could help you decide.

In Warner Robins, the local chambers of commerce have scheduled a session explaining Question 1 on the ballot. That's the one that would change the process for creating charter schools.

Advocates will explain the pros and cons of the proposed consitutional amendment, then the public can ask questions.

That event begins at 6 PM at the Robins Regional Chamber, 1228 Watson Blvd.

Fort Valley State University tonight is sponsoring a town hall style political forum.

They expect Congressman Sanford Bishop and his challenger John House to be there, along with Peach County candidates.

The forum starts at 6 PM at the Pettigrew Center on Fort Valley State's campus.

Bishop represents the 2nd Congressional District, which includes Crawford, Macon, Peach, Dooly and Taylor counties and most of Bibb County.


And in Macon, you can hear a debate between the two candidates for Bibb County DA -- Greg Winters and David Cooke.

It happens at the Mercer Law School on Coleman Hill, and a panel of Mercer professors will ask the questions.

That event also begins at 6 PM. The school is located at 1021 Georgia Ave.

The DA will represent the Macon Judicial Circuit, which includes Peach, Crawford and Bibb counties.
