WCN Candidates’ Forum Feb. 20

Party primary elections are March 6

Cast an informed vote by meeting the candidates in contested races on the ballots in the March 6 party primaries.

The Wilson County News will host a live Candidates’ Forum Tuesday, Feb. 20, from 7-9 p.m. at the American Legion Hall in downtown Floresville; this is only for candidates facing opposition on their party’s ballot. This includes Wilson County Republican candidates for:

County judge — Alena Berlanga and Richard L. “Dickie” Jackson (incumbent)

County treasurer — Debra Foster and Jan Hartl (incumbent)

Pct. 2 commissioner — Paul Pfeil (incumbent) and Tiffany Ward

Pct. 3 justice of the peace — Brad Beck, Lowell C. Hull, and Connie Terry.

Candidates will respond to prepared questions in this moderated, town-hall-style event. If time permits, questions from the audience also may be taken. The event is free and open to the public. There are no contested races at the county level on the Democratic ballot.

Unopposed candidates are invited to attend and be recognized.

Watch for more on the election in a coming issue of the Wilson County News.
