The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association will be hosting a candidate forum on Monday, Oct. 22, at 7 p.m. that will last about one hour. It will be held at the Red Bank Community Center behind Erlanger North, just off Morrison Springs Road.
The Red Bank Candidate Forum is free to the public and will give citizens the opportunity to submit questions to the candidates and meet them afterwards in an informal setting. All Red Bank residents are encouraged to attend and meet them.
Candidates for the State House District 27 and Senate District 10 will be participating, as well as Red Bank City Commission. Six candidates have committed to attend the forum, including:
- House District 27 – Frank Eaton and Richard Floyd
- Senate District 10 – Andrae McGary
- Red Bank Commission District 2 – Rick Causer and Monty Millard
- Red Bank Commission At Large – Eddie Pierce
Todd Gardenhire, candidate for Senate District 10, has a previous engagement that evening and is unable to attend, but did state he will be campaigning in Red Bank the third week of October. No response was received from Commissioner Kenneth Welch, incumbent for Red Bank Commission District 3.
This forum will be dedicated to issues that are important to citizens of the City of Red Bank. It is requested that citizens submit questions for the candidates in person at the forum or by email to RedBankNPA@gmail.com. Please include whether your question is for the House, Senate, or Commission candidates. This forum is hosted by the Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association and will be moderated by association chairperson, Carla Quinn.
“We want this forum to offer the information our citizens are looking for,” said Ms. Quinn, “and the most accurate way to do that is by allowing them access to the candidates. Red Bank is moving in a very positive direction and it has never been more important for the right people to be in office. In November, citizens will be making those decisions and we want them to have the information required to make it the right ones.”
