The area Chamber of Commerce hosted a meet the candidate night earlier this week. The event was attended by numerous candidates, or their surrogates, for national, state, and local elections.
The political speak and meaningless talking points were out in full force. It was an amicable event, but there was a lack of substance. Unfortunately, attendance by the general public was quite low. Was the hot weather keeping people at home? Is it general apathy? Or, have people made their choice for the August 7 primary?
