FOREST CITY — For the last several election cycles, the NAACP candidate forums have been an ideal way to meet Rutherford County candidates. This year it is the only way to hear from all the candidates for local office for the Nov. election.

NAACP President Travis McEntire has emphasized that everyone is welcome to attend – Republicans, Democrats, and Independents. Local elections and local leaders have the most effect on RC citizens’ lives.

Jerry Wease, community advocate

Jerry Wease will once again moderate the event that is known for asking pertinent, well-thought-out questions. Questions will also be accepted from the public.

The candidate list is below. Note that Spindale residents have an alcohol referendum on the ballot.
