The Pritchett Community, one of the largest voting precincts in Upshur County, will host a ‘Candidate Forum’ at 7pm on Tuesday, February 13th at the Pritchett Community Center. The primaries in March will have a full field of candidates…maybe the largest number in recent history. The citizens of Pritchett and all of Upshur County deserve to hear the ideas of every person running for office and this is an opportunity for each candidate to discuss, without interruption, their platform for five minutes. After all candidates have spoken, the public can mingle with candidates, ask direct questions, or make suggestions to platforms. This is important to all of us and if you are concerned about the future of Upshur County, this is your chance to hear what our public servants plan to do.

The Pritchett Community Center will provide coffee and cookies. Visitors are welcome to bring refreshments and help with set up and cleanup, as they wish. The Pritchett Community Center is a well-known, popular meeting place and is located on FM 1404, a bit South of Hwy 155, about half way between Gilmer and Big Sandy.

Get ready to meet your candidates on Tuesday, February 13th.
