Last week, the Southwest Louisiana Association of Realtors presented voters with an opportunity to meet the candidates that will be on the ballot in a few weeks. They were also offered an opportunity to ask the candidates questions during a public forum.

A massive group attended the public forum last Thursday. It is said that over 400 locals were in attendance for the event. The event would allow the community to and voters to get out and visit with each candidate and get to talk one-on-one with each candidate.

The event featured comments from candidates running for Sheriff, Judge, and Police Juror in Calcasieu Parish and Lake Charles.

The night began with a meet-and-greet that lasted over 2 hours, and after that, the forum began.

The event was streamed live on Facebook, and if you missed the opportunity to attend, you can check it out here:
