Click to hear KMZU’s Kristie Cross speak with Farm Bureau President Sherry Jones:
Livingston County Farm Bureau is hosting a meet-the candidate event in Chillicothe on Tuesday. “The first thing you hear from folks whenever they say they didn’t vote or they’re not planning to vote is that it’s because they don’t know the candidates or they’re not familiar enough to feel like they want to cast a vote,”said Jones, “So, we would like to host an event this year that brings the candidates out and gives the patrons a chance to meet them and learn what they represent.”
All county-level contenders have been invited to participate. “We have Paula McCoy and Susan Davis and that’s for the treasurer’s position ,” said Jones, “Kelly Christopher and Dowell Kincaid are seeking the office of recorder of deeds. For the county clerk, we have Jennifer Lightner-Leach and Sherry Parks. Then for presiding commissioner we have Ed Douglas and Billy Peniston.”
Candidates will be available to visit one-on-one with voters during the event which is scheduled for 7:00 pm Tuesday evening in the Family Life Center of the Calvary Baptist Church in Chillicothe.
