Ohio Gov. John Kasich, a Republican presidential candidate, will hold a town hall campaign event Tues., Feb. 23, 5-6 p.m. at Sandy Springs City Hall, according to the city.
The city said it is making City Hall available to any presidential candidates for such town hall style events in advance of Georgia’s March 1 presidential primary election. Kasich’s event will be open to the general public, though details are still being worked out, according to city spokeswoman Sharon Kraun.
“Selection of our next president is an important decision, and we are pleased to provide a venue giving our community the opportunity to interact with presidential candidates,” said Mayor Rusty Paul in a press release.
Kasich’s campaign “asked about the space, and the mayor and council thought this was great for any of the candidates,” said Kraun in an interview. “It’s a great opportunity for the community to understand who the candidates are.”
The city will provide the City Hall space to any of the candidates free of charge, Kraun said.
City Hall is located inside an office park at 7840 Roswell Road, Building 500.
Kasich’s town hall is forcing a location change for a previously scheduled community meeting about Parc Communities’ plan to turn the Apostles Church on Hammond Drive into senior housing. That 6 p.m. meeting will be held at the Sandy Springs Police Department Training Room, 7840 Roswell Road, Building 800.
