WWET-FM hosts forums for South Georgia political candidates

WWET 91.7 FM will sponsor a series of political forums as election day approaches. "Voicing the Vote" airs from 7 p.m. to 8 p.m. Mondays through Nov. 2.

The program will provide listeners with the opportunity to hear the viewpoints of various candidates for area races, said Michael Taylor, VSU instructor and executive producer of the series. Candidates will give position statements and take questions from the series producer, Mary Alice Adams-a faculty member in the Communication Arts Department.

Races to be featured during the next few weeks include State House Districts 176, 177 and 178, State Senate 8th District and U.S. House 2nd District of Georgia.

"Voicing the Vote" is airing as a public service to Valdosta-area listeners, coordinated by the VSU Communication Arts Department.
