City candidates attend Patriots forum



• District 3 Phillip Smith (Challenger):

Smith's main concerns lie in animal control and public works and maintenance.

“Animal control provided by a service delivery agreement under the county is inadequate in many respects. A coordinated effort between the city and the county to move forward with this is within best interest. My advice to Council is to take the lead on this issue and insure that our residents have reasonable access to not only cat and dog services but others as well,” Smith said.

Smith said a SeeClickFix app is a free service for residents to report to public works. Citizens can take a GPS tagged photo then sent to the city.

“They feel like there are drainage issues and potholes that when they contact government they don't believe government works for them,” he said.

The District 3 challenger said community gardens could boost blighted areas.

“I look forward to working with each of the candidates whether they are elected or not,” Smith said.

• District 4 Walter Reynolds (Unopposed):

Reynolds highlighted community service through the Oconee River Greenway Authority and the Young Professionals of Milledgeville.

The Keep Milledgeville-Baldwin County Beautiful program has a new board through the Young Professionals working on beautification projects and litter control.

“Once of the best ways to invite industry interest is to put our best foot forward and put on our best face,” Reynolds said.

The District 4 unopposed candidate wants to make Milledgeville “truly camera ready.”

“I'm fully committed to creating a website directory of all community properties available and of interest to the film community with all the pertinent information they need to feel welcomed and invited to do business here,” he said.

Reynolds praised the Shaw Buildings future as a business incubator and communiversity providing a springboard to CSH campus.

• District 5 Pam Beer (Challenger):
