From the May 11, 2016 issue of The Journal
   A special Political Forum was held at the Josh Gibson Center in Buena Vista on Monday evening. The event featured candidates seeking the offices of Sheriff, State Representative, and Judge. Due to deadline constraints, the portion of the forum for the judge candidates (who had surrogates speak) is not included in this article.
   Also, the information below is condensed summaries of the candidates' responses. More detailed answers may be found in video clips here.
   It should also be noted that candidates for Marion County Probate Judge and Marion County Commission At-Large were not invited to be on the panel during this forum due to them not having opposition in the Primary Election, but plans are being made to include them in another forum before the General Election in November.
   The candidates for Marion County Sheriff spoke in alphabetical order.
