The Federation of Greater Baton Rouge Civic Associations (FGBRCA) offers you an opportunity to meet the candidates for Mayor-President for East Baton Rouge Parish during the Mayoral Candidate Forum at the Main Library at Goodwood at 7 p.m. Thursday, August 11. All registered candidates have been invited to the Forum, which is FREE and open to the public.
Nancy Curry, President of the FGBRCA, encourages members of the community to attend the Federation’s August meeting, stating that “These are very important positions—here’s a chance to learn something about each of the candidates.”
As part of its mission, the FGBRCA is constantly educating its member Associations in matters of mutual interest and participating in community-based organizations which seek to improve the community environment and quality of life.
Curry went on to say, “The Federation is primarily an educational organization; we encourage civic engagement and try to keep our members informed about things that are happening in the community, especially with ordinances and planning. It’s very important to educate the citizenry about the candidates for Mayor and Metro Council members—what they do has a profound effect on all of us.”
An additional forum for candidates for the East Baton Rouge Parish Metropolitan Council is scheduled for 7 p.m. Thursday, September 8, at the Main Library at Goodwood.
