Mayoral Candidates Answer Questions on Banning Pit Bulls and TSPLOST

Candidates address Tributary's Douglasville Mayoral Candidates Forum on Sunday.

All four mayoral candidates answer questions regarding potential ban on Pit Bulls and whether they support the new TSPLOST. , and addressed the Tributary's Douglasville Mayoral Candidates Forum on Sunday.

During today's Douglasville Patch video, candidates address the following questions, posed by moderator Richard Segal:

Last year the city considered single breed legislation that would effectively ban pit bull dogs in the city. Do you support this type of legislation?

Next year, voters will be asked to approve or reject a sales tax increase to fund a long list of projects that will be finalized at the end of this week. Do you support this Transportation SPLOST?

Come back to Douglasville Patch over the next week to find out how candidates answered the following questions:

Would you support having live broadcasts of city council meetings?

There is a contentious relationship between the city and county governments. Examples include squabbles over the Bright Star Connector and building inspections of the new County Jail. What would this relationship look like if you were mayor? What about the redundancies between the city and county operations. Some services are already combined like the water and sewer authority, the fire department and animal control. Should others be combined?  For example, law enforcement, parks and recreation, Development Authorities, or even the entire government structures like Athens-Clarke County

How do you plan to attract more businesses to Douglasville?

Richard, you did a great job promoting and moderating the debate. I don't live in the city limits, but I'm happy to hear the candidates' answers on the banning of the Pit Bulls.

OMG politicians with brains! I wish these people would come down here and run for mayor. I live in Miami, where we've had this RIDICULOUS ban for over 20 years now1
