The Pickens Progress will sponsor a political forum for state races on October 16th, at 6:30 p.m. at the Pickens County Administration Building in the Pickens Room.
The forum will feature races for the state legislature that include Pickens County:
• State Senate District 54 with incumbent Chuck Payne and challenger Michael Morgan.
• State House District 11 with incumbent Rick Jasperse and challenger Lee Shiver.
• Steve Gooch, running unopposed, in Senate District 51 will address the public.
The Progress’ Ball Ground correspondent Larry Cavender, who has received high marks for his handling of previous forums, will again moderate the event.
