The forum will be moderated by Chattanooga Times Free Press politics reporter Chris Carroll.

Following candidates’ introductory remarks, the forum will consist of questions solely from the audience. Each candidate will have two minutes to respond to the questions.

Candidates vying for the two available seats are Patricia Cassidy, John Clemmer, Marc Gravitt, Mimi Lowery, Stephen King, incumbent councilman Denny Manning, Ann Pruett and David Swindall.

Early voting begins Wednesday.
