Beaufort City Council candidate forum slated for Monday

Three candidates for a Beaufort City Council seat will discuss issues and field questions from the audience at a forum Monday hosted by the Beaufort Area Republican Club.

The forum begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Bay View Manor Community Room, 11 Todd Drive, Beaufort. The cost is $2 for members and $4 for non-members.

The candidates -- Larry Holman, George O'Kelley and Ron Petit -- are seeking the open seat held by the late Gary Fordham and are expected to attend, according to an email from the club.

Those who want to attend must call 843-525-0102 no later than Friday to reserve a spot, according to the email.

A special election to fill the seat will be July 19.
