How do we know how to vote or who to vote for? Can we trust the media to inform us with unbiased information? Should we rely on advertisements produced by the candidates? Is that information trustworthy?
The responsibility to be a prepared voter rests on our shoulders. We need to spend some time getting our facts together to know who the best qualified candidates are.
The good news is that there are tools available to help us. One of the best ways to learn about the candidates is to hear them personally as they articulate their positions and answer questions.
The local Small Business Patriots is sponsoring a candidate forum this Saturday, July 21. From 6:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. , you will be able to meet and greet candidates personally, and from 7:00 p.m. – 9:00 p.m., there will be a time of questions and answers. Candidates for state and county offices have been invited.
The candidate forum will be held at the Franklin County Baptist Association building on Hwy. 47 between St. Clair and Union. The building is on the east side of Hwy 47 about 2 miles south of Hwy. 50.
