The forum is sponsored by The Summerville Journal Scene and The Greater Summerville/Dorchester Chamber of Commerce and will be moderated by Journal Scene Publisher Ellen Priest. The forum will be held at 6 p.m. at Dorchester County Council Chambers. Candidates in all contested races that are primarily in Dorchester County have been invited. Those include SC House 97, County Council District 6, and the Dorchester District Two School Board.
Representatives from “Yes4Schools”, the citizen’s group backing the School Improvement Referendum, “CARE”, the citizen’s group opposing the School Improvement Referendum, and the YMCA, promoting the Aquatics Center portion of the referendum, have been invited to attend. Each will make a brief statement, and then answer audience questions regarding their position.
