A “Cookies, Coffee and Candidates” forum for three contenders running for the open Place 5 seat on the Copperas Cove City Council will be at 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Economic Development Corporation, 210 S. First St.

Azeita Taylor, George Duncan and Kirby Lack are vying for the position vacated when Councilman Kenn Smith resigned in March. The special election is set for July 22 with early voting beginning July 7.

Place 5 is a three-year term expiring in November 2016. Because Smith resigned near the beginning of his term, the city charter requires residents to elect a new council member rather than have the council appoint someone.

The forum will give each candidate an opportunity to introduce themselves followed by a question-and-answer session. For more information about the forum, contact Peggy Thompson at edthompson703@gmail.com or 254-547-4881.
