A debate between the candidates is set for 6:30-8:30 p.m. Thursday at the Gainesville Civic Center, 830 Green St. NE.
Four candidates are seeking to fill the seat of Myrtle Figueras in Ward 3, a historically minority community.
Two men are vying to for the Ward 2 post held by Bob Hamrick for almost 50 years.
