Exchange Club hosts Gubernatorial Forum for Governor candidates

JACKSON, Tenn.–The Jackson Exchange Club hosted a gubernatorial forum Tuesday for club members and guests.

Seven of the candidates joined the club to talk about their plans if elected Governor. Candidates Karl Dean, Craig Fitzhugh, Mark Wright, Chad Riden, Jeremy Stephenson, Yvonne Neubert, and Mezianne Payne spoke during the forum.

Exchange Club President-elect Jennifer Alford says the club wanted to give candidates a chance to meet with West Tennesseans.

“It’s a good way for West Tennessee to hear their voices, what their issues are, and a great opportunity for Exchange to hear them as well,” she said.

Candidates answered questions during the forum on various concerns, including their plans to promote the Megasite.
