The Advocate & Democrat will have completed coverage of the forum in the newspaper, as well. The last couple of City Commission elections have been uncontested, but this time there are 10 candidates vying for three City Commission seats.

“This election will shape the future of Sweetwater,” said WMTY Manger Bryan Burchfield.

“We are excited to provide this forum to help voters learn more about the candidates and the issues facing the Sweetwater Community,” added The Advocate & Democrat General Manager & Editor Tommy Millsaps.
