The Ellis County Republican Women are hosting a candidates forum Monday, Jan. 13, at the Waxahachie Civic Center.

The civic center doors open at 5 p.m. to allow candidates to set up their campaign tables, with the official meet and greet starting at 6 p.m. and continuing until 6:50 p.m.

At 7 p.m., KBEC 1390AM/99.1FM owner Ken Roberts and Waxahachie Sun publisher Scott Brooks will moderate the candidates forum. The forum will be broadcast live on KBEC.

Each candidate will be allowed to introduce themselves, state the office seeking and their qualifications and experiences. Each candidate also will answer several questions. The contested races will be included in the forum. These include state representative, Ellis County and district attorney, Ellis County Court at Law No. 3, Ellis County sheriff and Ellis County commissioner Pct. 3.

Those candidates not facing an opponent may address the audience once the broadcast concludes.

The meeting is open to the public and light refreshments will be available.
