Candidates running for the District 2 seat are Michael Fryar and Rebecca Smondrowski (incumbent). The candidates for the District 4 race are Shebra Evans (incumbent) and Steve Solomon.
Monday’s forum includes candidates for the Judge of the Circuit Court race. Voters may cast their ballot for up to four candidates in this race. The candidates include Bibi Berry, David Boynton, Christopher Fogleman, Michael McAuliffe, and Marylin Pierre.
Monday’s forum begins at 5:50 p.m. with important election information voters need to know. The Board of Education Candidate forum starts at 6 p.m. and is followed by the Circuit Court Judges forum at 8 p.m.
Rev. Barry Moultrie, Youth Pastor for Mt. Calvary Baptist Church, will moderate the forums. Each candidate will have the opportunity to make a statement. Then during the question and answer portion of the forum, all candidates will be asked the same question given equal time to respond. The public may submit questions on Facebook and YouTube using the chat function.
