From Jane Howe:
The DDCA will sponsor a Candidates’ Forum on Wednesday, October 20, 2010 just in time for one last face to face opportunity to ask questions of the people running for public office before early voting starts on October 22. The event will be held at the Darlington Volunteer Fire House located at 2600 Castleton Road in Darlington and begins at 7:00 PM.
Wendell Baxter, President of the DDCA, stated that the public may bring questions for submission, or may write their questions, on location, prior to the start of the forum. Questions on a similar topic will be edited into one general question. All questions will be answered as time allows.
Invited offices are: County Executive, County Council President, County Council District D, State Senate District 35, State Delegate District 35A, District D Board of Education, Sheriff and Register of Wills. All candidates will have an opportunity to give a brief opening statement before the question and answer session begins.
Baxter emphasized that this is an opportunity for citizens to meet and ask questions of the candidates. It also gives the candidates a chance to present themselves and hear, first hand, issues from citizens. He can be reached at 443-807-1399 for more information.
