Councilman Manny Rico and Chris Anderson, candidates in the District 7 City Council race, were given an hour of airtime to state their goals and express differences this morning during a conversation on WGOW's "FRED the Show."
Rico, who has represented District 7 for the past eight years, defended his term on council to Anderson, who suggested the councilman's track record of service had come up lacking.
Radio host Bob Moore moderated the discussion, which included calls from listeners and district residents.
District 7 covers Alton Park, areas of downtown, East Lake and St. Elmo.
Karl Epperson is also a candidate in the District 7 race.
WGOW plans to interview mayoral candidate Andy Berke Thursday at 10 a.m. and other candidates on Friday.
