Cecil - We're just a month away from primary election day. And candidates for all sorts of local races are out campaigning.

One area sheriff's race generated a lot of interest. Eight candidates are vying to fill the seat of Cook County Sheriff Charles Bryan, who announced his retirement last year.

William Bush, Waldo Warren, Willie Wooten, Tim Balch, Doug Hanks, Johnny Daughtrey, Denny Folsom, and Audie Rowe all want your vote!

Monday night might be the only time they'll be together before the July 15th primary.

A political forum will be held Monday at the South Georgia Motorsports Park in Cecil.

All eight candidates agreed to attend and answer questions from the community.

"Its hard I imagine for all of them when they are working to contact everybody, to get out and ask for votes. This is a good way for everyone to meet them at one time," says Irene Parks, Cecil City Councilwoman and forum organizer.

Organizers invited all 30-people who qualified for the seven open positions in Cook County.

That forum begins at 7:00 PM.
