Candidates’ forum rescheduled Monday at BHS auditorium

The candidates’ forum originally scheduled for Monday, Oct. 23 at Brady High School has been rescheduled for Monday, Oct. 30 in the BHS auditorium. Set to start at 10:30 a.m., the forum has been organized to give McCulloch County citizens a chance to get a closer look at how the upcoming election will affect them on a local level. The event will feature four candidates in two separate elections. Sponsored by the BHS U.S. History classes and Mr. Chuck Bailey, the forum will feature the candidates in the races for McCulloch County Attorney and McCulloch County Commissioner Pct. 3. The candidates in each of these races are scheduled to attend. The candidates are Ginger Treadwell and Ed Carrithers for County Attorney and Dick Marsden and Nelson Solsbery for County Commissioner. County Clerk Tina Smith will open the forum with a brief discussion of the position of running as a write-in candidate, the early voting procedures and voting protocol for election day. Deena Moore will also address those in attendance to inform them of the proper voter registration requirements and procedures. According to Bailey, the format of the forum will be designed where each speaker will be allowed 10 minutes in which they may present their views and opinions. A time-limited question and answer session will follow the last speaker. The forum is open to the public, and members of the BHS student body will attend by invitation only. Political party chairpersons for McCulloch County will be in attendance and will also be recognized. A list of possible discussion topics includes: individual candidate agendas, community impact, county concerns, crime and prosecution, education/vouchers, environment/ Texas’ resources, experience, family violence, federal obscenity laws/ pornography, future of Texas, presidential race, RU-486 abortion pill, school prayer, school violence, state health/ dental insurance, taxes. Refreshments and a “meet the candidate” session will immediately follow the forum.
