CANDIDATE FORUM A SUCCESS – JANUARY 8, 2018
On January 8 the four Democrat candidates for Congressional District 31 — Mike Clark, M.J. Hegar, Kent Lester and Dr. Christine Mann — answered questions to a standing room only crowd in the Cowan Creek Georgetown/Florence Room with many being turned away for lack of space. Each candidate is qualified and would be an excellent choice to replace Republican John Carter who has held this office since 2002. Eight terms – 16 years. Long enough! The purpose of the forum was to get to know the candidates through questions submitted by SunCityDems and to help voters decide who is the most qualified person deserving of support and our vote.
The forum was great! Everyone was civil because in a democracy we value others’ opinions. Each candidate proved qualified to be an excellent choice to replace Republican John Carter who has held this office since 2002. Eight terms – 16 years. Long enough!
Looking ahead to the primary election on March 6, 2018, a good turnout is crucial for us to promote to the general election the best candidate to defeat John Carter. If you are not registered to vote or have changed your address in Williamson County, it is important to register by the deadline — Monday, February 5, 2018.
