Don’t forget: There’s still time to submit questions for us to ask the candidates! Click here to learn more about.

Ignore the date in the post; the deadline to submit questions is this Friday, August 10.

It appears that we picked a bad day to skip the weekly city council meeting. We figured that the Southern Heritage Festival item would pass easily, so we played hooky. We’d also figured that current Birmingham mayor Bernard Kincaid was planning to announce his plans to run for a third term in office this week after learning that he’d removed himself from the municipal election commission. We just didn’t think he’d announce today (the office pool had him announcing tomorrow at the earliest, BTW).

Kyle over at Birmingham Weekly posted this piece about the mayor’s reelection announcement after this week’s council meeting. Now that all of our major candidates have finally announced (as well as all of the primary colors accounted for), we’re looking forward to watching it as it gets going.

The only question left is which day is the election taking place. Different outlets are reporting either October 2 or October 9. Either way it’s coming up very soon.
