Folks gathered at the Perry County Public Library in Hazard Thursday for the 2014 Hazard / Perry County Candidates Forum: “Meet the Candidates for City Commissioner"
The forum was an opportunity for people to hear from, and interact with, candidates running for the City Commissioner of Hazard. There were many topics discussed, but moderators say the most important questions of the evening would center around revitalizing the economy.
“What they're going to do to try and provide more of a job basis here in Kentucky and in Hazard to keep us grounded here. That people don't tend to migrate out and find opportunity elsewhere; to provide an economy here so that we can keep this place up and running,” says Madeline Sluss, one of the forum moderators.
The event was sponsored by Applebee's, Wendy's, Hampton Inn & Suites, the Perry County Chamber of Commerce and” Invision Hazard.”
