Johnston County Board of Education and County Commissioner Candidate Forum Dates Set

The Junior Women’s League of Smithfield, Johnston County Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., and League of Women Voters of Wake County have announced their plans to hold virtual candidate forums for the offices of Johnston County Board of Education and Johnston County Board of Commissioners.  The Johnston County Commissioner Candidate Forum will take place from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. on Thursday, September 3, while the Board of Education Candidate Forum will take place on Tuesday, September 15.

The purpose of the candidate forums is to give Johnston County voters an opportunity to hear candidates discuss the issues of importance to them in these elections. The events are free and open to the public, and will include a question and answer session from 7:00 p.m. until 8:30 p.m. that will be live-streamed on social media. 

The public may submit questions for these forums at www.jwlsmithfield.com.

 

Questions will be forwarded to the forum facilitator who will select questions after considering time restraints and eliminating repetitive ones. We do not guarantee that every question will be used. Please note:

 

* All advance questions must be submitted using the linked form and received prior to the forum.
* Questions may not be directed at or to a specific candidate.
* Each question must be stated clearly and address one topic.
* Questions for the Johnston County Commissioner Forum will be accepted here until Friday, August 28, and questions for the Johnston County Board of Education will be here accepted through Wednesday, September 9. 
* Should time allow, questions may be accepted via the JWL website during the event.
 

The Fall 2020 Candidate Forums may be viewed on Facebook and YouTube.
