The Midtown Neighbors’ Association will host a candidate forum ahead of this year’s elections at at The Nook, 1144 Piedmont Ave., on Wednesday, Oct. 23 from 6:30 to 9 p.m. The MNA has invited candidates for Atlanta City Council, Atlanta Board of Education and City of Atlanta Mayor for a casual, unscripted evening – no pre-planned questions, no speeches, no format. This is an excellent opportunity to get to know the candidates one-on-one before you head to the polls to cast your vote. The event is open to the public.
