League of Women Voters hosting Port Royal Candidates’ Forum

1 min read

The League of Women Voters is sponsoring the Port Royal Candidates’ Forum at 7 p.m. Monday, Oct. 21 at  at St. Mark’s Episcopal Church, 1104 11th Street, Port Royal.

Initially conceived as two separate forums, the format will now include the three candidates running for two town council seats and the two candidates running for mayor. 

An independent moderator – Asa Aarons, consumer reporter from “Just Ask Asa” – and timer will preside. Each candidate will have a set statement time; the moderator will then ask questions from the League and written questions from the audience.

Writing materials will be available for attendees’ questions. You can also submit questions by Friday Oct. 18 to LWVBeaufort@gmail.com.

Jerry Ashmore, Robert Landrum and Kevin Phillips are running for two town council seats. All three will be present Monday.

Mary Beth Gray-Heyward and Joe DeVito are running for mayor, as long-time mayor Sam Murray is not seeking re-election. Only DeVito will be present Monday.

Election Day is Nov. 5.
