Wade on Birmingham

Vote 2007: Mayoral forum the first


ballot 2006

Six candidates would like your attention, please, as the first Birmingham mayoral candidate forum kicks off tonight. The Parkway East District Business Association will hold the event featuring questions from the media and the chamber of commerce, as well as written questions from the audience.

The participants:

  • Valerie Abbott, city council;
  • William Bell, city council;
  • Patrick Cooper, attorney;
  • Bernard Kincaid, incumbent;
  • Larry Langford, county commission;
  • Carole Smitherman, city council.

(We guess that means Kincaid is, in fact, running for a third term.)

The fun begins at 7 at Parkway Christian Fellowship, 9753 Parkway East. And only 75 days until Election Day.

    Thanks for the heads up on this. How long before the last few “unannounced” candidates have to make it official? Is it in August?

    You’re welcome.

    Nope, they have until Sept. 18, 21 days before the election, according to the mayor-council act.

    I really hope Kincaid is running…otherwise, I am definitely scared for my life. None of the others have even proved they are worthy and wise enough to run for mayor. And Patrick Cooper and Langford needs to sit down immediately…they just moved to the city. There’s always gotta be an outsider trying to jump into the ring.
