Ellisville forum brings candidates and voters together

ELLISVILLE, MS (WDAM) - With 3 weeks left to go until the August 2 primary, more than 2 dozen state and local political candidates gathered in Jones County Tuesday night to ask for your vote.

A "Jones County Political Meet and Greet" was held at Jones County Junior College's Advanced Technology Center in Ellisville.

It gave candidates for governor, lt. governor, state treasurer and other offices a chance to meet voters face-to-face to discuss the issues.

Candidates then took the podium to give individual campaign speeches which were carried live on statewide radio.
