The Brookhaven Reporter is compiling video profiles of candidates running for a seat on the first Brookhaven City Council.  The ground rules are simple: candidates get about two minutes to make their pitch to voters and we post the unedited clip on We are not accepting prerecorded videos. The videos will become part of a voter’s guide page containing photos, short biographies and a short Q&A with each candidate.

To arrange a time to shoot a video profile, contact Associate Editor and Digital Content Manager Dan Whisenhunt at 404-917-2200, ext. 113, or email him at Shooting takes 10 minutes or less.

The idea is to help voters put a face and a voice to the people running to represent their interests. Check out the video profiles for District 1 candidate Kevin Fitzpatrick , District 3 candidate Erik Steavens and District 4 candidate Joe Gebbia:
