The 2019 Aiken City Council Political Forum was held Aug. 6 in the Municipal Building downtown.
The four District 3 candidates: John Brecht, who is a Democrat, and Republicans Kay Biermann Brohl, John Klecker and Nick Weaver, got to address questions put together by the Aiken Standard, who organized the event in front of a live audience.
The Republican primary for District 3 will take place Tuesday, Aug. 13. Only residents who live in District 3 can vote in the primary.
Other forum participants included City of Aiken Mayor Rick Osbon, a Republican who is unopposed in his reelection bid, and Gail Diggs, a Democrat, who is seeking to return to her District 1 City Council seat.
Diggs will face Jeremy Stevens, a Republican, in the general election. Stevens declined to participate in the forum.
