Mississippi’s political advocates and grassroots volunteers will have several opportunities to engage candidates and participate in discussion over public policy this week.
Monday, diners will enjoy a Penn’s catfish dinner at 6 provided by Country Boys Farm Supply in Pelahatchie as they listen to Senator Chris McDaniel discuss his run for US Senate.
Third District Congressional Candidate Whit Hughes starts the day off Tuesday morning over coffee in McComb at a local meet and greet.
The Mississippi Humanities Council begins another discussion in the ‘Ideas On Tap’ series at Hal and Mal’s in Jackson at 5:30, this time to discuss infrastructure funding and governments role. The event is billed as one about “potholes, bridge closures, and, ultimately, the role of government in our society.”
Minutes later at Brandon City Hall, SuperTalk Mississippi and the Rankin County Republican Women will begin a debate between the GOP candidates for Mississippi’s Third District. Supertalk’s Paul Gallo will moderate.
Wednesday night the candidates are at it again in Meridian. The Lauderdale County Republican Party will sponsor the forum, presented by WTOK-TV and The Meridian Star at Meridian Community College starting at 7 p.m.
