A few weeks ago farragutpress announced that it would invite the two Farragut mayoral candidates to debate on one of its sister radio stations in the Horne Radio Group.

In the interim, farragutpress discovered that at the same time and date another debate featuring all of the candidates in the upcoming Farragut election was being organized by members of the Farragut Kiwanis Club and the Farragut/West Knox Chamber of Commerce.

While the idea of hosting a radio debate remained tempting, farragutpress decided that in the better interest of the community it will join forces with the Kiwanis Club and Chamber and become the print media sponsor of their debate.

So, in order to make it official, farragutpress will no longer be sending its invitations to Mayor Eddy Ford and challenger Bill Johns to participate in a radio debate.

Instead, farragutpress looks forward to being the print media sponsor of the upcoming Farragut Kiwanis and Farragut/West Knox Chamber of Commerce debate to be held at 6:30 p.m., Monday, March 7, at Farragut Town Hall.

It is the hope of farragutpress that a spirited debate takes place and that the main assembly room at Town Hall is filled with Farragut voters seeking to learn the issues and hear relevant questions concerning the growth and future of Farragut.

farragutpress, with this issue and the two following issues, will continue its “meet the candidates” feature appearing on the front page.

The debate is tentatively slotted to be broadcast on Charter Cable channel 3, the Farragut public access cable channel that currently broadcasts meetings of the Farragut Municipal Planning Commission and the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen.

For those of you who cannot be in front of a TV at this precise time, here is plenty of advance notice, about four weeks, for you to set your TiVO, program the VCR or set up your computer’s TV recorder for later viewing.

Remember, the election is April 5. Early voting begins March 16.

Voting will take place at the Town Hall.

Vote. It’s important.
