It's election season in the City of Oneonta and the Oneonta Business Association believes in the importance of our municipal offices. We hosted a political forum for all candidates seeking seats on Tuesday, August 11, at 7 p.m. at Anchors Church on Hwy 75 in Oneonta. With the COVID-19 situation, social distancing guidelines were followed. Thanks to St. Vincent's Blount for doing temperature checks at the door.
Extra special thanks to Anchors Church for allowing us to hold the event in their worship center.
The Forum was livestreamed via Facebook Live by the Anchors technical team..
