A candidate forum set for this evening in the Lyceum at Lee (former Lee Middle School property) has been rescheduled for next week due to the threat of severe weather.
Most of Columbus’ municipal race candidates had agreed to participate in the event, which was set to begin at 6:30 and be livestreamed on WCBI’s website. However, severe thunderstorms that could produce tornadoes remain in today’s forecast.
The Dispatch, WCBI and Lyceum at Lee are sponsoring the event.
Peter Imes, publisher for The Dispatch, said a reschedule date for the forum had not been finalized but those details will be posted as soon as possible at www.cdispatch.com/forum.
