Chamber sponsoring non-partisan political forum tonight at Civic Center

With the November elections right around the corner, the Hopkins County Chamber of Commerce wants to give everyone the chance to meet the candidates and hear what they have to say,

so I am happy to announce that the Chamber will be hosting a non-partisan political forum for the three local contested races. They include State Representative incumbent Mark Homer and his Republican Party opponent Erwin Cain; Democratic incumbent Hopkins County Judge Cletis Millsap and his opponent, Republican Chris Brown; and the race for Precinct 2 County Commissioner between Trey Hinton, the GOP nominee, and Mike Odell, the Democratic Party nominee. The forum is tonight at the Civic Center. The doors will open at 5:30 p.m. and the forum will begin promptly at 6 p.m. The public will be able to submit questions (the questions will be screened to assure that they are legible and not harassing), and each candidate will have time to address the question. This is a wonderful opportunity for our community to get to know the candidates better and make an educated decision when it comes time to vote. For more information, please call the Chamber at 903-885-6515.
