I just wanted to give Jessamine Countians a quick update as to where we stand on the up coming candidate forums sponsored by The Jessamine Journal.
In nine days, the first of two forums will take place at West Jessamine High School.
The first forum on Oct. 14 will be for city offices. Both mayoral candidates have confirmed they'll be on hand, but to date, only five - Larry Allen, Johnny Collier, Chris Moore, Andy Williams, and John Martin - of the nine commission candidates have confirmed they'll be in attendance.
One candidate - Betty Black - declined the invitation due to a previous engagement she said she wasn't able to get out of.
That leaves Douglas Day, Roy Lamb and Danny Shearer who have not committed one way or the other.
As for the Oct. 21 forum, both Bob Damron and Lynn Fuller have committed to attend, Damron had a wedding reception to attend that day, but said in an e-mail the forums were a higher priority.
