Candidates for Alabama Senate District 12 face an audience in Oxford Thursday night.


OXFORD -- It was a cordial session of pleasantries Thursday night at the Oxford Civic Center as four hopefuls for State Senate District 12 laid out their “if elected” platforms during a candidate forum.


Anniston lawyer Wendy Ghee Draper, Weaver Mayor Wayne Willis and businessman Keith Kelley all have their hat in the ring for the upcoming Republican primary on May 24.


Democrat contender certified public accountant Danny McCullars is running unopposed and will face the Republican winner in the general election on November 8. About 80 people attended the event which was moderated by Mike “Tex” Carter of radio station WHMA.


The forum was sponsored by the Calhoun County Area Chamber and Visitors Center, Consolidated Publishing, The Calhoun County Republican Party, The Calhoun County Democratic Party and The Cheaha Republican Women’s Club. The candidates were asked a series of questions ranging from a lottery, education to health care and state corrections.


This forum was streamed live last night, with low viewership and with a handful of people in the audience. What does that mean? I want to see/hear ALL the candidates before I vote. What about you?
