Submit your questions for sheriff, judge-executive candidates

-A A +A

Suggestions could be used at political forum April 22

By The Staff

Do you have a question you would like to ask the Democratic candidates for sheriff? How about the Democrats running for judge-executive?

Submit your question to The Anderson News, and you just might get an answer.

The Anderson News and Anderson County Chamber of Commerce will sponsor a political forum featuring those candidates on Thursday, April 22 at the Anderson County Middle School auditorium from 6 to 8:15 p.m.

Sheriff candidates will answer questions from 6 to 7 p.m., followed by judge-executive questions from 7:15 to 8:15 p.m.

E-mail suggested sheriff questions to sheriffquestions@theandersonnews.com.

E-mail suggested judge-executive questions to judgequestions@theandersonnews.com.

General Manager Ben Carlson and News Editor Shannon Brock will determine which questions will be asked.

Only Carlson and Brock will know the questions that will be asked.

Candidates in each race will be asked the same questions, and given an opportunity to comment on his opponent’s answers.

No questions will be accepted from the audience during the forum.

Carlson will be the forum moderator.

There are no Republican candidates for sheriff. There is one Republican and one independent candidate for judge-executive, and each will be invited to participate in a debate with the winner of the judge-executive Democratic primary in the fall.
