The News-Graphic has reached out to all candidates for the Georgetown City Council and Stamping Ground and Sadieville city commissions to complete a brief Q&A for an upcoming election edition scheduled to be published Oct. 20.

Any candidate who has not received a questionnaire and who wishes to participate should request it by emailing as soon as possible so you can be included. Deadline is this Thursday at 5 p.m. in order to allow time to produce the section.

In addition, the News-Graphic has offered to conduct a brief video interview with Georgetown city council candidates. Those interviews will start appearing on the News-Graphic’s website at and its YouTube channel later this week. 

Candidates for other offices may submit a 300-word column expressing why they are the best candidate for their position. Email those columns, along with a photo, to Deadline is this Thursday at 5 p.m.

In the past, the News-Graphic has held debates, forums and meet-and-greet gatherings for candidates, but out of an abundance of caution such events will not be held this election season. 

These services are offered free to each candidate as a community service.
