OAK HILL - Fayette County residents met local politicians and heard their stances Wednesday morning.

The Fayette County County Chamber of Commerce held a Meet the Candidates breakfast for the public at the Oak Hill Holiday Lodge. 21 candidates were present to answer questions.

Organizers said the chamber and AEP have partnered for several primary elections to host a meet-and-greet to help locals educate themselves before the voting time comes. “It's important for citizens to take the time to become more informed so that when they do mark that ballot and cast that vote, that they actually have information on why they're supporting that candidate,” explained Sharon Cruikshank, executive director of the Fayette County Chamber of Commerce.

Cruikshank encouraged voters to hold their candidates accountable. For locals who want more information, Cruikshank recommends visiting the party offices.
