Local Democrats will be hosting "Meet the Candidates" tonight at the Historic Summerville Depot in downtown Summerville. The event will feature a free hotdog supper sponsored by the Chattooga County Democratic Party. Many of Chattooga County’s elected leaders have committed to attending the event. Democratic candidates for office are encouraged to attend the meeting which will be held from 6 PM – 8 PM. The meeting will begin with supper and a meet and greet with candidates. Then each candidate that wishes to speak will be given around 5 minutes to address voters. Democratic Party Chairman Jimmy Holbrook said that local Democrats expect a good turnout at the event and is encouraging local voters to come out for the free hotdogs and to meet the candidates. Also, local Democrats will hold their regular monthly meeting at 5:45 PM, just before the event.
