Candidate forums set for Oct. 13, 20
The Midway Woman's Club and the Woodford County Chamber of Commerce will host a candidate forum on Thursday, Oct. 13, at Midway University for individuals running for the Midway City Council. The official program will begin at 7 p.m. in the Duthie Auditorium in the Anne Hart Raymond Building. All candidates are welcome to arrive and set up information tables in the lobby area of the building at 6 p.m. to greet guests arriving and talk with them individually. Candidates are welcome to stay after the event in the lobby area to speak with guests. There are seven individuals running for six seats on the Midway City Council. The individuals running for city council are incumbents Sara Hicks, Bruce Southworth, Steven Craig, Kaye Nita Gallagher, and Libby Warfield, and newcomers Steve Simoff, and John McDaniel II. All have agreed to participate in the forum. The second candidate forum will be held on Thursday, Oct. 20. The official program will begin at 7 p.m. in the Duthie Auditorium. Candidates invited include U.S. Sen. Rand Paul, Lexington Mayor Jim Gray, U.S. Rep. Andy Barr, Nancy Jo Kemper, state Rep. James Kay, and Daniel Fister. Those who have responded are Nancy Jo Kemper, James Kay, and Daniel Fister. Both of these forums will have the same agenda. Each candidate will get three minutes to introduce themselves and then all candidates will be asked questions that are submitted by the community members. Each member will have three minutes to answer the question. These are not debates but informational forums for the community. Questions for the candidates may be sent to Don Vizi at the Woodford County Chamber of Commerce, 141 N. Main Street, Versailles KY 40383, or by email to email@example.com.
