The Downtown Association will play host to the six candidates running for the two city council positions at its monthly meeting on Wednesday. The meeting will be held at the Tap Room, 129 East Hopkins Street.

Downtown Association President Brian Montgomery said the candidates were invited to meet with the association because of its focus on issues involving the downtown area.

Issues of interest to downtown include revitalization, parking, late hour bar closing, police presence and an overall city commitment to a vital business and entertainment district.

The six candidates include Lisa Marie Coppoletta, Shaune C. Maycock and Ryan Thomason for Place 5 and incumbent John Thomaides, Anita Fuller and Monica Garcia for Place 6.

The Downtown Association of San Marcos is a volunteer organization comprised of people interested in promoting the appearance, safety, vitality and economic development of the downtown area.
