Presbyterian College to hold “Meet the Candidates 2016” political forum

On Thursday, Oct. 6, 2016 at 7 p.m., the Presbyterian College political science department will hold “Meet the Candidates 2016” in Edmunds Hall. The forum will host candidates running for public office.

Dr. Erin McAdams, associate professor of political science has worked with County Councilman, Garrett McDaniel, to organize the event.

“It is imperative that each voting citizen in this county be informed on the policies and plans of every candidate,” said McDaniel. “Providing events like this where nearly all of the candidates can present their platforms to our community is of the utmost importance. Knowing the facts that are important to you, give each of us an opportunity to help mold the society we want to see.”

The candidates participating in the forum include Hosea Cleveland, D-U.S. House District 3; Mark Willis, R-S.C. House District 16; Brandon Greene, D-S.C. House District 16; Mike Anthony, D-S.C. House District 42; Tommy Mann, R-S.C.-House District 42; and Stephane Williams, I-Laurens County Sheriff.

The moderated forum will be open to the public. The moderator will be asking the candidates questions gathered from the public ahead of the event.
