As fall arrives, so does election season and Cartersville Patch wants to know your questions for the two candidates vying for one city council seat.
Incumbent Ward 3 representative Louis Tonsmeire Sr. four years ago edged out a win over Hoyt Hatfield with 51 percent of the votes. This year, he faces a challenge from newcomer to the ring and Woodland High School teacher Valerie Holt, who this year completed the Cartersville-Bartow County Chamber of Commerce's Leadership Program, according to the Facebook page, Valerie Holt For Cartersville City Council.
Tonsmeire has been on the council since 2002.
