The First Capital Republican Women (FCRW) and the Logan County GOP hosted a public forum Thursday evening for three Republican candidates running for Logan County Commissioner District 2.

Current commissioner Mike Pearson along with Michael Albright and former commissioner Kevin Leach fielded questions for nearly 50 minutes in front of an estimated 100 people inside the American Legion Building in downtown Guthrie.

Candidates (L-R) Michael Albright, Kevin Leach and Mike Pearson speak to citizens at the Republican public forum at the American Legion Building.

Each candidate started with a two-minute opening comment before fielding questions in which they had one minute to comment. Questions were submitted by the public on index cards and read by moderator Linda Tatom.

After all the questions were asked, each candidate had a two-minute closing remark.

Leach served as the county commissioner from 2005 to 2009 while Pearson has held the position since that time. Meanwhile, Albright will be looking for his first term.

The primary election is set June 26. The general election is Nov. 6.
