Up until Friday, Feb. 3 it appeared to 40 South, sponsor of the League of Women Voters forum for mayor of Brentwood, that after candidate Louise Charboneau passed on it would be canceled unless incumbent Chris Thornton said he would take part. He hadn’t responded to emails and phone calls from 40 South asking if he would.
The forum can’t take place with one candidate, and it appeared that Barbara Clements was the only one willing.
However, a volunteer at the LWV office said Thornton had emailed and called there, and had agreed to participate. So it’s on, with Clements and Thornton.
The forum is set for 7-9 p.m. on March 13 at at the Brentwood School District conference room, 1201 Hanley Industrial Court.
