Why is that important?
Because at 6:00 PM, at Bessemer City High School, you have the opportunity to hear the candidates for City Council districts 4, 5, 6 and 7, and for School Board district 7.
City Council District 4 - Ralph Hodge and Donna Thigpen
City Council District 5 - Ron Marshall, Albert Soles, Robert Dale White
City Council District 6 - Jesse Matthews, Edward May II, Dock Scott
City Council District 7 - Earl Cochran, Jr., LaBrenda Marshall Jones, Cleo King
School Board District 7 - Hattie Aikerson, Wanda Faye Thomas, Carolyn Hudson Wilson
We have 2 former candidates for mayor, several former candidates or members of the council and board, the son of the mayor, a few newcomers, and some incumbents running.
Even after all the promises that were made four years ago there are still a lot of problems in Bessemer. Does that means that those who are incumbents are "part of the problem?" Just a thought.
This is Bessemer. We need to make it better. Thanks, Larry, for your photos.
See you tonight!
