Newnan-Coweta Chamber will sponsor a candidate forum Oct. 22 at the Chamber building in Newnan.
Candidates seeking the Coweta County Commissioners Fifth District seat and candidates for the 132nd District, Georgia House of Representatives will be presenting their platforms.

One candidate has qualified to challenge incumbent Carl Von Epps (D, Troup) and will run in the Georgia House of Representatives District 132. He is Gene King (R, Meriwether). One candidate has qualified to challenge incumbent Al Smith (D) County Commissioner for the Fifth District in the Nov. 6 primary election. He is Hayden Marlowe (R).
