I believe all the candidates in attendance had good opinions and comments . I hope the people realize now there is a plan for the downtown area. I do believe the question asked about Dent Myers was very tacky , but every candidate answered in a very professional manner. Joe Bozeman

I was very glad I was able to attend this forum to learn what the slated candidates have in store for Kennesaw as well as learn why other items are off the table to-date. My issues were not addressed at this open forum due to time, however, I was in a position to ask the candidates directly and received my answer privately. The issues that keeps Kennesaw from fully thriving were not addressed here but I hope they will be in the future after this election. As a Retired Career Contract Auditor and a 18 year resident of Kennesaw, I see clearly the stumbling blocks that can hamper success in a weak economy for Kennesaw as well as the solutions. Folks of Kennesaw need to participate in the process & come out and vote. We can not let a small minority decide for all of Kennesaw. I appreciate the Kennesaw Patch & the Kennesaw Elementary PTSA for hosting the event and hope this is the first of many forum opportunities.

This was a very insightful evening. Thank you to all the candidates that participated in the forum and for your willingness to serve the great city of Kennesaw.

I was so impressed with our community support of this forum. Thank you all for coming out and spending your time to get involved. EM you are right, we need more voters to get out to the polls and more citizens to take an active role. Great to see you Eric.

Thanks to all the candidates and community members who came out last night. It was great to finally meet some of you in person!

Gaetana, I want to thank you, David Chastain and of course Patch for your vision in putting together such a wonderful forum last night. I think it was very informative and it was great to see such a good turnout on the first attempt. I think the forums/debates will get better and bigger everytime Patch puts one on...Great Job!!!
