|A local candidate forum hosted by CornerStone of Freedom last Thursday night was a huge success. It began with the Pledge of Allegiance led by Jake Jones, a senior, at Wasatch High. Twenty-one candidates particpated in the forum. Five candidates who were unopposed spoke for a few minutes introducing themselves to the audience. These included State Representative Kraig Powell, County Attorney Scott Sweat, County Clerk/Auditor Brent Titcomb, County Sheriff Todd Bonner, and County Surveyor Jim Kaiserman.
Other candidates were posed three to four questions polled from the audience. Questions were relevant to the offices which included: County Recorder, County Treasurer, County Assessor, County Council seats, and School Board.
Approximately 140 plus people were in attendance. Many commented how helpful this forum was in helping them to decide who to vote for. CornerStone of Freedom plans on hosting future forum and hopes that interest in the community will create a need for a larger venue location.
