A mayoral candidate forum, sponsored by WTOK-TV and Meridian Community College, will give voters perhaps the best chance to size up all the candidates in one session.

All of the five candidates have agreed to be part of the forum: Cheri Barry, Republican, and Democrats, Percy Bland, William Bond Compton, Joe Norwood, and Casandra Sloan.

The candidates were preparing Monday for the forum, in addition to working their campaigns.

The candidates will share their platforms and ideas to a televised audience and a live audience at MCC's McCain Theatre, from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m Tuesday. It will air live on MyTOK2, Comcast Cable channel 2 and digital channel 11.2.

Candidates say they are excited about hearing questions and concerns from residents and reaching a broader audience.

WTOK is also asking its audience to submit questions for the candidates. The questions may be sent to news@wtok.com.
