Urban chicken forum Thursday; proposed ordinance updated

The candidates for mayor are incumbent Bob Kelly and Spencer Galloway. Candidates for the two available commission seats are Mary Sheehy Moe, Owen Robinson and Rick Tryon.

Commissioner Fred Burow announced previously that he was dropping out of the race, but his name will remain on the ballot because under state law, he didn’t withdraw by the deadline of 85 days prior to an election to be removed from the ballot.
