Local Democrats are giving the public a chance to personally meet candidates running in the Third Congressional District.
Three Democratic candidates have been invited to attend a bi-monthly meeting of Mississippi Democrats.
The meeting starts at 10 a.m. Saturday at Family Life Center at Clark's Funeral Home, 621 Obie Clark Drive (30th Avenue) in Meridian.
The public is invited to get acquainted with Joel Gill, James Jackson, and Shawn O'Hara.
"We want you to know who these people are and what they stand for, and what they propose to do for the Third Congressional District, all 21 counties in the Third Congressional District," said Melba Clark, chair of the Lauderdale County Democratic Committee. "And Lauderdale County is one of them. So we invite people from the surrounding counties as well."
There will also be a 'meet and greet' reception for Democratic candidates next week in Meridian, at Percy Bland's insurance office, 1602 24th Avenue, Thursday at 6 p.m.
The three Democrats meet in the June 1 primary.
Incumbent Republican, Cong. Gregg Harper, is unopposed in the GOP primary.
