The Washington County Republican Women on Tuesday will host a debate for several of the candidates vying to fill the 6th District seat of the Tennessee House of Representatives, officials said.
Those candidates participating will include Joshua Arrowood, Ethan Flynn, Patti Jarrett, and Lee Sowers, according to Laura Wheeler, WCRW president. Dale Ford will be represented by his wife, Joyce, and Michael A. Malone will not attend.
“Our club has done this in the past,” Ms. Wheeler said. “But this is the first one we’ve had this year.”
The public is invited to attend the event, which begins at 6:30 p.m. at the Jonesborough Visitors Center, Ms. Wheeler said. Each candidate will speak for three minutes, answer five questions, and conclude with a three minute remark.
Debate chair Janel Prescott said the candidate have no prior knowledge of the questions they will be asked. She and Ms. Wheeler solicited the questions from club member and the public, she said.
“It had to be a state question, not federal or local,” Ms. Prescott said. “And it did have to deal with relevant issues.”
The primary election is scheduled for Aug. 3, with early voting beginning July 14. The general election will be held Nov. 7.
