A report from La Roca Methodist Church
On Wednesday, April 14, eight of the nine candidates running for an at-large seat on the City Council met at La Roca Methodist Church on North Limestone. Joining incumbents Chuck Ellinger and Linda Gorton at the foot of the La Roca alter were former First District Council rep George Brown (now running for an at-large seat), Christopher Hignite, Kathy Plomin, Ralph Ruschell, Steve Kay and Don Pratt. Ismael Shalash was the only candidate not in attendance.e
The forum is one of several being held around Lexington before the May primaries, in which the field of nine candidates will be whittled down to six. Ultimately, Lexington voters will choose three at-large candidates to sit on the City Council.
