We need to hear from YOU!
A candidate forum for locally contested races will be held on Monday, April 23, and we need YOU to submit questions for the candidates. (Questions can be submitted anonymously)
Local candidates invited to attend the forum include:
• Evans County Board of Commissioners, District Five: Vernon Owens and Wesley Jenkins.
• Evans County Board of Education Chairman: David Greene (incumbent) and Durell Lynn (retired school superintendent).
State Representative Bill Werkheiser and challenger Delvis Dutton will also participate in the forum. (Dutton held the seat prior to Werkheiser’s election when Dutton vacated the position to run for another office). Congressional candidates have been invited as well.
The event will begin at 5:15 p.m. at the Veterans Community Center in Claxton with a meet and greet followed by the forum at 6 p.m.
Uncontested candidates for Evans County Board of Commissioners and Board of Education seats will be invited to introduce themselves to their constituents, but will not field questions like those running for contested seats.
Citizens may submit questions to The Claxton Enterprise or the Claxton-Evans County Chamber of Commerce in person or via email to email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All questions must be submitted by Friday, April 20.
