GOP candidates in contested races to hold open forum this week

By CLINT FOSTER

Republican candidates for the three contested county seats in this year's primary election will be on full display this week when they hold an open question-and-answer forum, 7 p.m., Thursday, at Holiday Hills Country Club.

All seven Palo Pinto County GOP candidates from the races for County Judge, County clerk and District Clerk will all be in attendance and ready to answer questions submitted by the audience. The event is free to attend, with the exception of an optional buffet which patrons can purchase at 6 p.m.

Palo Pinto County Republican Party Chair Barbara Upham said all questions must be submitted, in writing, before the event officially begins at 7 p.m. She said candidates will be brought forward according to their corresponding race and will be given three minutes for an opening statement, two minutes to answer each question and another three minutes for a closing statement. Each candidate will answer all submitted questions that pass a minor screening process by a committee of candidate representatives to ensure there are no personal attacks or inappropriate questions. Upham said none of the candidates will see the questions before they are asked.

The order in which the candidates begin will be determined by a coin toss with the candidates then alternating the order of answers and closing statements.

The following is a complete list of GOP candidates who will be in attendance and their corresponding races (an asterisk denotes incumbent):

County Judge

• David Nicklas *

• Ernest Pechacek

County Clerk

• Janette Green *

• Jessica Wright

• Debbie Murray
