Senoia candidate forum Oct. 17


The three candidates featured in the Senoia mayor’s race in November will face each other in a forum to be held Oct. 17.

The mayor’s seat will be the only contested municipal race in November. Qualifying for the seat were incumbent Councilman Larry Owens, retiree Don Rehman business owner and Senoia Downtown Development Authority Chairman Suzanne Helfman.

The Senoia Forums Group announced Monday that the forum will be held in the courtroom of the Senoia Municipal Building at 505 Howard Road on Thursday, Oct. 17 at 7 p.m. The forum provides candidates the opportunity to express their views on city issues and answer questions submitted by Senoia residents and from the Questions Committee of the Senoia Forums Group.

Forum organizers said each candidate will be given time to make an opening comment, answer questions on city issues and make a closing comment. Questions for the candidates from the residents of Senoia should be submitted in advance by Wednesday, Oct. 16 by email at

Please make your questions on city matters only and as explicit as possible for all candidates to answer, organizers said. Questions will be accepted from the meeting attendees and will be asked, if time permits. Question cards must be filled out upon entrance to the municipal building. If the questions are not addressed due to time restraints, the candidates will respond to your email address or by phone.

The forum is sponsored by the Senoia Area Business Association.

The deadline for registering to vote in the November 5 election is Oct 7.
