Laurens County Tea Party is sponsoring a County Council Candidate Forum on Thursday May 17th at 7 pm at the Laurens YMCA. All candidates for Districts 1 and 5 have been invited. Ted Nash is the District 1 incumbent, and he is not running for re-election. There are 4 candidates running: Adam Howell (confirmed), Susan Thackston (no response), Ryan Thorne (confirmed) and Kemp Younts (no response.) Keith Tollison is the District 5 incumbent and he has not responded. There are two challengers, Jeffrey Carroll and Dale Mitchell, both of whom are confirmed. Please submit questions to belsom@prtcnet.com. Each candidate will have 5 minutes to speak and 5 minutes for questions, which will be asked by the moderator. Everyone is encouraged to attend! County Council makes MANY decisions that directly impact the residents, including tax increases. Be an informed citizen and voter! https://www.facebook.com/events/383831442099650/
