DODGE CITY, Ala. – As the Aug. 25, 2020 Municipal Election approaches, The Tribune is holding Q&A sessions between candidates.
In Dodge City, incumbent Councilwoman Inez McDonald will face challenger Mark Brannon for place 4.
Why did you choose to run in the 2020 election?
McDonald: “To help the town. I’ve seen it grow, and I love the people, the town, and I want to see it grow even more than it has the last few years.”
Brannon: “I love Dodge City. Council seats shouldn’t be lifetime careers nor should any other elected position. I hope to add a new face to our aging council.”
What would you like to do for Dodge City if reelected/elected?
McDonald: “Everything I can, everything the people or majority really want, that’s what I want to do.”
Brannon: “If elected, I would love to help secure a red light at the intersection of County Road 216 and (Alabama) State Highway 69.”
Are there any specific projects you’d like to work on if reelected/elected?
McDonald: “Nothing special; we as a council all work together (on projects).”
Brannon: “The business community needs to grow so that our town can grow.”
Why do you think the people of Dodge City should vote for you?
McDonald: “We’ve done a good job so far; anyone can look and see what we’ve done. We want the town to grow. There a lot of prospects here.”
Brannon: “In 1980 I became friends with a family who lived in Dodge City. I was from West Point and barely knew anyone. I have always felt that Dodge City adopted me in 1980, so by electing me to the town council, they are finally signing the paperwork.”
