IN A NUTSHELL: In the fall of 2005, 2007, 2009, 2011 and 2013, the East Charlotte Forum was held at Amity Presbyterian Church for at-large City Council candidates and mayoral candidates. They were given equal time to respond to a number of questions, selected in advance, dealing with issues and opportunities in our part of town.
As in past years, Steamer’s Sports Pub – at Pierson Drive and Albemarle Road, just doors from Amity Presbyterian – is graciously sponsoring a post-forum reception starting at 9 p.m. (complimentary hors d’oeuvres; cash bar).
