Chamber Of Commerce Holding Candidate Forums

The Cookeville-Putnam County Chamber of Commerce is holding two political candidate forums this month in an effort to educate its membership about the people running for both the Cookeville city council and the Putnam County commission. The Chamber is inviting members to attend what they are calling the Business Before Hours: Meet the Candidates Series. Part One is scheduled for one week from Tuesday and will focus on candidates running for the 24 available seats on the Putnam County Commission. Part Two will be held on July 20 and will focus on the ten candidates running for Cookeville City Council. Organizers say they have asked the candidates to present their platform on business-related issues that affect the Chamber’s Membership.
