Political Forum Tuesday
A political forum featuring the three contested races on the Chattooga County Board of Education is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday at the Civic Center on Hwy. 48.
The Summerville News and WZQZ is hosting the event to give the public a better understanding of each candidate’s views.
Each candidate will have a short opening statement to introduce themselves. Then the radio and newspaper will ask the candidates a series of questions. If time permits, each candidate will have a closing statement to sum up their views.
The three Republican candidates, Sammy Ballard, Brad Hayes and Julia Houston and the three incumbent Democrats, Eddie Massey, Larry Weesner and Alma Lewis have all been invited to attend.
The forum will be moderated by Chattooga County 4-H Director Caleb Millican.
The public is invited to attend. WZQZ will broadcast the forum live on 99.1 FM and AM 1180. The event will be live-streamed on the radio and newspaper’s websites or Facebook pages.
