Tonight the DeSoto County Republican Women’s Club is hosting a HobNob at the Olive Branch Courthouse, starting @6pm.  This will be an opportunity for citizens to meet our local Republican candidates.  I believe the first hour is for people to mingle, walk around and meet the candidates.  At 7pm, each local, Republican candidate will have 2 minutes to stand up and speak.  This event will include any of the local candidates running on the Republican ticket.  This is a great opportunity to voice any concerns you may have or get to know those running for office.  We have a lot of positions up for election this year:  Constables, House Reps, Senators, Superintendent, Justice Court Judges, Board of Supervisors, Chancery Clerk, Circuit Court Clerk and I am sure some others.  Make plans to attend if you can.  This is a great opportunity to have all of these people in the same place.  Take advantage of this opportunity to meet all of the candidates and speak face to face with those currently representing us and those running for office this year.  
I have been asked about school board members, but they are not up for re-election at this time, but school board president Steve Dodd will be in attendance.  He is running for Justice Court Judge, and the superintendent candidates will be in attendance.  Also, DeSoto County gained 2 new House seats this year and 1 new Senate seat, so we will have more representation in the state legislature next year.  The district lines have changed, so make sure you know your district.  To make it easier for you, below are links to the district maps.
