District 131 Political Forum Can Be Heard Online

THOMASTON - On May 14, 2020, the Upson County Republican Party and WTGA Fun 101 Thomaston presented a Republican Candidate Forum with Upson County Commission candidates and District 131 candidates. Pike County Times has uploaded the audio copy of the forum for the District 131 candidates.

[Note from the Editor: It has taken forever to upload a 20 minute segment of an approximately 45 minute forum so I'm only uploading the District 131 section.]

The forum included an opening and closing statements and questions with Georgia State Representative District 131 Candidates Beth Camp and Kenny Coggins.
