With Gwinnett set to elect a new County Commission Chair this fall, the five Gwinnett County Community Improvement Districts (CID), Gateway85, Gwinnett Place, Evermore, Lilburn and Sugarloaf, will be hosting a virtual online candidate forum 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 22. In order to comply with statewide shelter in place restrictions, residents can access the online candidate forum via Zoom and broadcast live on facebook.

As of April 14, the event will feature seven of the eight candidates who have confirmed their participation, including George Awuku, Nicole Love Hendrickson, Andy Morgan, Desmond Nembhard, David Post, Curt Thompson and Lee Thompson. The eighth candidate running, Marcia Neaton, declined to participate in the online format. The event will be moderated, and candidates will be allotted time to answer questions covering transportation, redevelopment, security and more. Viewers may submit questions via the Zoom chat option or in the Facebook Live comments.
