Eighth District council forum coming up in Germantown

    The 8th District City Council is crowded. And it should be an interesting one, since longtime seat-holder Donna Reed Miller isn’t seeking re-election.

    NewsWorks will host three public forums for 8th District residents to express their biggest concerns to the next councilperson. The first one is coming up: March 22,  First United Methodist Church of Germantown, 6001 Germantown Ave.

    It’s all leading up to a larger event: a debate among the candidates April 27. These three forums will help shape the debate, sponsored by WHYY/NewsWorks, the Committee of 70, G-Town Radio, the League of Women Voters and Germantown Community Connection.

    For the first time in 16 years, the district will have a new councilperson. Make sure that person know what he/she is doing.
