Clarkston, GA — On Sept. 27, Decaturish conducted a forum for Clarkston City Council candidates ahead of the Nov. 7 municipal elections.

All Clarkston City Council races are at-large, meaning there are no districts. There are three seats on the ballot and all three incumbents — Debra Johnson, Laura Hopkins and Awet Eyasu — are running for reelection. Hopkins and Johnson attended the forum, which was conducted via Zoom. Challengers Dean Moore, Dr. Charles Jenkins and Mark Perkins also attended the forum.
