Pick of the day: A more entertaining forum

The City Council candidates will have another chance to tell Hendersonians about their hopes and dreams today at a forum arranged by Ward 1 at-large candidate Sara Coffey, who has said this event will be her only effort to campaign for the council seat she’s trying to take from Bernard Alston. The fun part of the forum, in addition to the possibility that the questions will make the candidates squirm, is that there will be gospel music in addition to debate. It all kicks off at 4 p.m. at Cotton Memorial Presbyterian Church. We’re hoping that Cotton Memorial’s pastor, the Rev. Todd Hester, will challenge each candidate to diagram any sentence from City Manager Eric Wiliams’ e-mail to Elissa Yount about the water meeting last week.
