County Executive M. Elizabeth Bobo, who originally accepted Republican challenger Charles I. Ecker's invitation to a series of three public forums, has told Ecker she cannot attend the forums because of scheduling problems.
Ecker sent Bobo his invitation the day after he won the Sept. 11 primary against Republican Gil South. It invited the incumbent to forums on Sept.
25 at Glenelg High School, Oct. 8 at Centennial High School and Oct. 30 at Hammond High School.
Because of "previous commitments," Bobo told Ecker in a Sept. 17 letter that she could meet him only at five forums she had previously planned to attend.
