Democrat meet-and-greet candidates
Tables began to fill with patrons at the Martin Community Center Friday evening, April 8, who wanted to hear from Democratic candidates for several county and state positions. The "meet and greet" -- hosted by the Saline County Democratic Club and Saline County Democrat Central Committee -- allowed not only area Democrats but members affiliated with other or no party an opportunity to learn more about those running in the August primary. Candidates were limited to approximately two minutes at the podium due to the number seeking office -- particularly for the position of Saline County sheriff. Six Democrats, and three Republicans, are hoping for the nod from their party.
