Gubernatorial candidate Karl Dean holds open forum

CHESTER COUNTY, Tenn. — Democratic gubernatorial candidate Karl Dean is on the campaign trail, visiting several counties across West Tennessee.

Dean stopped by the Chester County Courthouse Monday to hold a Q&A with residents. Congressional candidate for the 7th district Justin Kanew attended the meeting as well.

The former Nashville mayor also met with teachers Monday afternoon for a round table discussion on public education. Dean said it’s important to interact with the community.

“You need to explain to people why you’re running,” Dean said. “I’m running because I think the state wants a moderate, pragmatic, commonsense governor who is going to work on issues that really matter to people.”

So far, Dean says he’s visited 74 out of the 95 counties.
