The two men looking to hold the highest elected office in Bryan were live on KBTX Tuesday morning to give their takes on the issues.
Brazos Valley This Morning hosted Jason Bienski and Mitch Morehead, one of two mayoral candidate forums to be held this week on the show.
Bienski, a realtor and current member of the city council, has served as mayor pro tem for a number of years. Prior to his five years on the council, he served on a number of boards for the city.
Morehead has served on numerous boards as well, both before and after the local business owner served a term on the city council early in the decade. He also served as mayor pro tem.
