O'Neill will be there, and he says that a number of other city, county and other officials, including Mayor Beth Davis and Alderman Derrick Crane, will be stopping by to listen also. Parents, teachers and administrators are invited. Channel 5 will be taping the forum. The event is intended as a no-pressure opportunity to talk and discuss ideas in person and then have some fun.
