Candidates' Forum a Success

Monday, April 26, 2010

The University of West Georgia’s Gubernatorial Candidates’ Forum addressed the state’s water issues, highlighted by a debate among the candidates for Georgia governor from both major parties.

The forum, “Legal and Operational Challenges to Water Conservation,” gave gubernatorial candidates an opportunity to share their ideas for conservation and management of Georgia’s water resources – a key issue to be faced by the next governor.

Candidates included Republicans Jeff Chapman, Nathan Deal, Eric Johnson, Ray McBerry, John Oxendine and Austin Scott and Democrats Thurbert Baker, Carl Camon, DuBose Porter and David Poythress.

Fox 5 Atlanta TV news anchor Deidra Dukes moderated the event, which took place in The Coliseum.
