The Democratic Party of Marion County hosted a Meet the Dems event at Peace Tree Brewing in Knoxville on Sunday.
Three candidates were present to meet with constituents, Marion County Board of Supervisors candidate Stanley Bingham was ill and unable to attend, but House District 28 candidates Ann Fields and Zachary Pendroy, and House District 79 candidate Samantha Keith greeted an enthusiastic crowd. Over 50 people showed up to the event, and Marion County Democratic Party Chair Megan Suhr tells KNIA/KRLS News these types of events are important because it allows voters to hear what issues their candidates stand for in person, and so the constituents can connect with the party directly. If you wish to learn more or to volunteer for the Marion County Democrats, you can find them on their facebook page or call 515-250-1644. The primary for candidates is on June 5th.
