The election is right around the corner. It is every registered voter’s right to express their opinion by casting their ballots.

The Mt. Vernon Business Women’s Club will be holding a Candidates Forum next Wednesday, September 28th at the Rolland Lewis Community Building at the Mt. Vernon City Park. A “Meet and Greet” session will be from 5:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. Promptly at 6:30 p.m. the official forum will begin. THIS IS NOT A DEBATE! It is an opportunity to learn more about the candidates and their platforms. There will be an opportunity for members of the audience to turn in questions for review and discussion. Please come and join us at this informational meeting. WMIX will also be broadcasting the Forum live on 940 AM radio.

Be prepared and when Election Day rolls around do you civic duty and VOTE! Make your choices known.
