The two men running for the Sallisaw Police Department’s top job will take part in a public forum from 6-7:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 27, at the People Inc. Conference Center.
Incumbent Chief Terry Franklin and Sallisaw police officer Chris Abner are running for the chief’s position in the upcoming election.
The forum is sponsored by the Sequoyah County Times and KXMX, The Mix 105.1.
Darren Girdner, owner of G2 Media Group, the parent company of Channel 19 and KXMX, said the public is invited to the event, which will be broadcast live on Channel 19.
The forum will be in the standard format. Names will be drawn to determine the order of opening statements, questions and closing statements. Openings and closings must be three minutes long for each candidate and each will have two minutes to answer direct questions from forum moderator Marley Abell.
Girdner said he has a lot of appreciation for the crew at People Inc. “They are always so willing to let us use their facilities for community events.”
