ECA14324-9218-4486-A662-6BC92BE92CE7

UPDATE:

Message from Forum Moderators Mary Brocato and Tommy O’Con

We plan to hold the forum on November 12 regardless of how many candidates show up. We think it’s important for voters to be able to hear the platforms and plans these candidates have. Candidates that have agreed to participate are Mr. Ronny Richardson (Candidate for Sheriff)  and Mr. Carroll Ellzey (Candidate for Assessor). Those who declined are Aaron Mitchell (Candidate for Sheriff) and Chris Tidwell ( Candidate for Assessor). We will be getting the names of Police Juror candidates who may or may not be participating and publish them tomorrow. This will be a civilized forum and not a debate. Questions will be asked by the moderators. No questions that would embarrass any candidates will be asked. Regardless of the number of candidates that attend, we will have the forum. Sponsored by the Town of Many, this event will be held at the Many Community Center on Nov. 12. It is something you don’t want to miss.

 

A Sabine Parish Candidates Forum with candidates in the Sheriff and Assessor runoff races has been in the planning stages for November 12 at 7 pm at the Sabine Theater in Many. Organizers for the event had received commitments from three of the four candidates to participate in the event. A commitment from Assessor Candidate Chris Tidwell is pending. Assessor Candidate Carroll Ellzey and Sheriffs Candidates Ronny Richardson and Aaron Mitchell made a commitment to attend.  However late yesterday afternoon Mitchell informed Forum Coordinator Mary Brocato that he is cancelling his participation. Mitchell stated that his campaign team had advised him that it wasn’t in the best interest of his campaign to participate in the forum.  Sheriff Ronny Richardson said if the event is held, he would still participate by answering any questions asked by the moderators.  If Tidwell commits to participate, the forum will be held as scheduled.

  1. We plan to hold the forum on November 12 regardless of how many candidates show up. We think it’s important for voters to be able to hear the platforms and plans these candidates have. Mr. Ronny Richardson snd Mr. Carroll Ellzey have firmly committed and we are hoping that Mr. Chris Tidwell will also commit. Whether we have two or three candidates or all four, we will have the forum. Sponsored by the Town of Many, this event st the Many Community Center on Nov. 12 is something you don’t want to miss.

  2. It’s just shows who really wants to show that there ready to meet the citizens and answer questions. Says alot about there character. Me personally I respect and support Mr. Richardson in his campaign in becoming our sheriff. Me and him have talked a few in the past and he has great marks and ideas for the community. When I told him that i wanted to get involved in politics myself. He was very encouraging to me. That says alot about his character. Keep up the good work sir. If I have a ride. I’ll try and make it there.
