The Jaycees and the League of Women Voters are credited with campaigning for a council-manager form of government. In December 1953, their efforts were successful with the establishment of a new charter for Savannah’s governing body.

“The Savannah Jaycees have a long history for inspiring young men and women to take an active role in civic projects, political matters and economic opportunities,” said Nicole Hyatt, Jaycee member and Forum Chair. “We feel a responsibility to provide a time and place to hear from these candidates who hope to be leading the way in all of these significant areas of our community.”

Attorney Charles Bowen will serve as moderator for the Q & A format. Bowen is a business attorney who focuses on commercial, banking, entertainment and manufacturing law and also offers comprehensive mediation services.

All registered candidates have been invited to participate and will all be asked the same questions. In addition, candidates will have a brief opportunity for rebuttal and time should also allow for some attendees to ask questions. For more information, visit
