Murray takes questions at H’wick forum

For the second time, a Howardwick candidates’ forum turned into a one-person show last Tuesday, October 24, when a question and answer session was planned for citizens running for alderman.

Jada Murray was the lone candidate to appear at the forum.

Doc Holladay did not attend, and calls by the Enterprise to Holladay’s cell phone were not returned as of press time Tuesday afternoon.

As was the case with the mayoral forum in which only Mayor Pro-tem Eric Riddle attended October 17, Howardwick citizens submitted questions before the event, and moderator Maverick Cruise, a Clarendon College student from Memphis, selected the questions.

Asked about her three top priorities for Howardwick, Murray said the roads were her first priority and discussed reviving the community’s road committee. She also hopes to see the community get together one a month for a social or pot luck dinner, and her third goal is to get more people to move to Howardwick.

“We need to grow,” Murray said. “We need to do anything we can to make people want to come here.”
Early voting in the Howardwick special election continues through Friday, November 3. Election day is November 7.
