COLORADO SPRINGS — Starting today, KOAA News5 and The Gazette are teaming up to bring you live Zoom townhalls that will give you a chance to ask the 21 candidates for six City Council seats your questions and hear their answers.
Today we heard from District 1 candidates Glenn Carlson, Jim Mason, and Dave Donelson. The fourth candidate, Michael Seeger, was unable to attend. Learn more about the candidates by visiting our Election Watch page
