"We do this every four years and the candidates are real interested in meeting the employees and being to meet those people they'll be representing," said division manager, Mark Cawthon.

Candidates for virtually every statewide and local office visited meridian for the informal get-together.

Also Monday, a candidate for justice court judge in Clarke County announced his platform at Enterprise Town Hall.

Republican William lee said he wants to work for justice and fairness in the place-one seat.

Lee, retired from the military and Burlington Industries, said he served in the Tennessee state legislature before moving to Clarke County 35 years ago.

Incumbent judge, Tobey Bartee, is seeking reelection to that office on the democratic ticket.
