WALKERVILLE — Walkerville Thrives is sponsoring a “Meet the Candidates” event Thursday, July 21, at the Walkerville Wesleyan Church gymnasium, 144 S. Hamon St., beginning at 6 p.m. The public is cordially invited.

Invited to participate are the 19 candidates in the five contested county races; District One Commissioner, Drain Commissioner, Road Commissioner, Sheriff, and Treasurer. Each will be given five minutes to talk about their qualifications and the major issue they feel the winner will face. They’re invited to stay after the program to chat informally with voters.

Also invited are three area townships candidates’ contested races. Township candidates for Elbridge and Leavitt will be given five minutes to talk about their qualifications and the major issue they feel the winner will face. They are also invited to stay after the program to meet their township voters.

There are other candidates running unopposed for Prosecuting Attorney, Register of Deeds, Surveyor and area Township offices (Crystal, Colfax, Elbridge and Leavitt). While there is not enough time for them to speak, the moderator will recognize those who attend and invite them to stay and mingle afterwards as well.

The Walkerville Wesleyan Church will provide a light dinner for around $5 plus desserts, so plan on eating, too. Food will be available throughout the event. Food proceeds benefit the church’s parking lot project.

For more information, call (231) 873-1295.

The Walkerville Thrives’ focus is on building a strong Walkerville area community for residents and businesses, encouraging youth as an investment in our community; maintaining and improving community support and resources; developing new and strengthening existing tourism/visitor attractions; and building quality roads for businesses, farmers, and residents. To participate, join them on the third Tuesday of the month from 7-8:30pm. Like Walkerville Thrives on Facebook for meeting locations and future events or call (231) 873-1295.

The primary election is Tuesday, Aug. 2.
