Monday evening the Bulloch County NAACP hosted the first of two local candidates forums at the Statesboro Inn. Monday night the forum included County Commissioner candidates.

Tuesday evening beginning at 6pm the Bulloch County NAACP will host the second forum with Bulloch County BOE candidates.

In Commission District 1B incumbent Commissioner Anthony Simmons (D) and challenger Preston Tutt III (R) participated.

In Commission District 2B candidate Jennifer Campbell Mock (R) and Jake Hallman (D) participated.

Early voting has began for the primary election which will be held on Tuesday, May 24th. Since there are only two candidates running in opposing parties in District 1B that race will not be decided until the November general election.

That is the same with district 2B. There are three candidates running for 2B in the republican primary, In addition to Jennifer Mock, Travis Chance and Toby Conner are all running as republican’s. The winner of that primary will face Jake Hallman in December.
