Cape County Commission candidates to take part in Thursday forum
Republican candidates to be the next Cape Girardeau County 2nd District commissioner will get a chance to make their case to voters at a forum Thursday.
The event, sponsored by the Southeast Missouri Pachyderm Club, starts at 7 p.m. at Dexter Bar-B-Que, 236 S. Broadview St., in Cape Girardeau.
The three Republican candidates pursuing the seat -- Moe Sandfort, Charlie Herbst and incumbent Jay Purcell -- will each take part, and incumbent 1st District Commissioner Paul Koeper will also be in attendance, though he is unopposed in the upcoming election, according to a Pachyderm Club news release.
The program is open to the public. The club will have a business meeting at 6:45 p.m. before the forum starts at 7 p.m. Those who wish to eat dinner are encouraged to come earlier.
The club has other forums scheduled for candidates in state Senate and House races and statewide offices. Any candidate who wants to participate can call Cape Girardeau County Recorder Scott R. Clark at 204-0852.
For more information on the Pachyderm Club, call Holly Lintner at 573-200-4073.
