Four candidates and representatives addressed a crowd of approximately 50 individuals Monday evening at the Cannery for a forum, sponsored by the Brenham Activist Association and Concerned Citizens for Progress.

Marsha Webster, who is running for the Texas State Board of Education to represent District 10, addressed a myriad of issues in public schools.

Daniel Dick, a representative of Pritesh Gandhi’s campaign for Texas’ 10th Congressional District, spoke on the candidate’s behalf, stressing Gandhi’s medical expertise and background in healthcare.

Helen Harris, a representative of Shirley Harris-Jackson, spoke on the candidate’s behalf as Harris-Jackson seeks election to the position of Precinct 1 commissioner on the Democratic ticket.

While the Democratic primary is uncontested, the Republican ticket for Precinct 1 commissioner is a race between incumbent Don Koester and Rick Seeker.

Seeker was not in attendance.

Koester, Webster, Harris and Dick addressed attendees, making the case for election in their respective races and answered audience questions as well, ranging in topics from healthcare and political divide, to poverty and the 2nd Amendment.

Faith Mission’s the Rev. Randy Wells emceed the event.

“It was very well attended and there were great questions from the public,” Wells told The Banner-Press.
