Candidate for Chattooga County Sheriff and former State Patrol Trooper John Everett told Jason Espy of The Summerville News that the question posed by AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio News at the Political Forum on Tuesday night was not a fair question. At the Forum all of the candidates for Sheriff were asked about their political party affiliation and if they had recieved the support of the Republican Party or attended Republican Party meetings. Everett confirmed that he had addressed a meeting of the Chattooga County Republican Party but that he was not aware of any money that he had received from the Republicans. Everett is running as a Democrat in the July 15th Primary. AM 1180 Chattooga County Radio News received the question from listeners.
Next Thursday June 26th another political forum will be held at the Chattooga County Civic Center. The Forum is being hosted by the Chattooga County Farm Bureau and the public is encouraged to attend.
