Six state Senate candidates debate issues


The six candidates vying for the state Senate District 20 seat met Tuesday at a Middle Georgia State University in Warner Robins for a candidate forum.

In the hour and a half panel discussion, the six hopefuls - all Republicans - fielded questions ranging from religious freedom and taxes to gambling and education. One of the hot topics was education reform.

Jon Martin of Dublin said officials "need to listen to teachers and what is going on in the classroom, and what they need. If our state is expecting bureaucrats to make decisions in Atlanta and in Washington regarding local education issues, we're going to fail."

Brooks Keisler of Warner Robins said current teaching methods aren't producing the desired results.

$4.1 million approved for Warner Robins City Hall renovations


Warner Robins City Council Members approved $4.1 million to go towards renovating City Hall.

The money, which will come from the 2012 SPLOST, will improve office space inside and include a courtyard out front, paying homage to the five branches of the military.

"We're outgrowing, outgrowing the building itself," explains Councilman Clifford Holmes.

Holmes served on the planning committee. He says the building, which was built back in the '70s, needs to change and modernize, just as the city has.

"The people who have got to come to work every day and run the city are cramped up, nowhere to go," he adds.

"It needs, not only a facelift on the outside, but some internal renovations as well that will carry it to the next generation," says Warren Selby, President of Warren Associates Inc.
