AUBURN, AL (WTVM) - A forum for mayoral and city council candidates was held in Auburn Monday.

The event was held by the League of Women Voters of East Alabama and took place at the Clarion Hotel. Guests were able to meet the candidates, ask questions, and express their concerns.

"It's very important that people feel like they can talk to their elected representatives, and In this case, for city council. The person representing them could be their neighbor and they could live just up the street. They should feel like they can talk to them at any time with any questions about the quality of life in their neighborhood," said Cory Unruh, co-president of the Women League of Voters.

Monday marked the first of many forums. The next event will be held in October.
