The Ooltewah/Collegedale Chamber Council will host a Hamilton County District 7 candidate debate at the Collegedale Municipal Building April 8. Doors open at 5 p.m. and moderated debate will start promptly at 5:30 p.m.
Registered candidates for Hamilton County District 7 will feature Sabrina Turner, Phil Smart, Perry Perkins and Ezra Maize. Debate will be moderated by Council President Joshua Michalski, who will address the same questions with each candidate. Questions will focus on broad community issues identified by the Council and community leadership.
“We want this to be a real ‘rubber meets the road’ type of discussion,” said Mr. Michalski. “This debate will require the candidates to offer details and specifics that give voters the information they need to make the best decision for the upcoming election. I’m excited to see how this plays out.”
Audience participation should respect the integrity of each Candidate, and all questions will be conducted through the moderator.
The Chamber does not endorse any candidate or party and will maintain impartiality as much as possible. The Council’s goal is to give each candidate an equal opportunity to present his or her position on issues impacting our community.
