The forum will take place at 6:30 p.m. Oct. 15 at the W.E. Knox Center and is sponsored by the Jones County/Gray Chamber of Commerce and The Jones County News.
All the state and local candidates representing Jones County in the Nov. 6 election have been invited to attend. Several of the candidates for the upcoming election are new to politics, and this is the chance for Jones Countians to meet their candidates in person and hear what they have to say.
Attendees have the opportunity of bringing questions for the candidates to the forum and written questions will also be accepted during the event.
Jones County has two contested positions on the Board of Commissioners. The incumbent, Chairman Preston Hawkins (R), is being challenged by local businessman Chuck Baker (D), who served as a commissioner from 1977-80.
