We received this invitation from the Tharptown Fire Department (Franklin County, Alabama), with a request that we share it with citizens concerned about the tar sands mining proposals:
We would like to cordially invite you to the Meet the Candidates event at the Tharptown Fire Department (23 Hwy. 80- corner of Hwy 48 and 80) on Saturday October 25th. The schedule of events is as follows.
4-7 PM –Spring Valley BBQ ($8.00) and free desert and coffee
5 PM. Silly games and prizes
6 PM Candidates Speak
Raffle with over $600.00 in prizes.
Although there is no question and answer period while the candidates are speaking the candidates usually show up early and stay around after they speak. That is the best time to get their attention and ask questions about Tar Sands.
Probate Judge Barry Moore will be there to explain the redistricting. Other expected candidates include:
- Mr. Letson
- State Rep. Johnny Mack Morrow
- State Sen. Roger Bedford
