JUDGE-EXECUTIVE Democrat candidate Terry Webb listened carefully while candidates told voters why they should vote for them in the May 22 Primary election during a Meet The Candidates event at Webbville Saturday.

The Webbville Vol. Fire department hosted a “Meet the Candidates “ Saturday afternoon May 12, 2018. There was a hot dog meal and a homemade cake raffle.

Some of the cakes sold for over $100. 

Each candidate got two minutes to tell a little about themselves and why they should be elected. Most of the reasons were they bring more jobs and increased revenue for the county.

Some touted their youth while others their experience. There was a good turnout and this reporter hopes they have one more of these events before Election Day.

(Several county-wide candidates showed up for the event but several did not. This has been an unusually quiet election with candidates preferring to put up signs along the roads. Only two candidates have stopped by for a personal visit or left cards, Mark Wheeler and Coleen Stone. --Editor)

 Here are some candidate spottings.

Jill York is not a friend of teachers or the working Kentuckians.

It might be smart to actually quote per candidate what was said those two minutes so those who couldn’t make it might have a better idea as to who has Lawrence County’s best interest at heart. Just my opinion though.
