Simpson County Judge Executive Forum

Election Day is two and a half weeks away and we continue our look at area races with our mini-forums during WBKO at 5.

On October 20, 2006, the candidates for Simpson County Judge Executive participated in their own WBKO forum. Republican incumbent Jim Henderson and democrat challenger Mark Sexton had a chance to answer three questions and give a closing statement in a seven minute period of time.

Questions started with incumbent Jim Henderson and listed below are the questions that were asked:

1. What do you think is the biggest problem facing Simpson County and how will you address it?

2. What do you think needs to be done to anticipate or facilitate growth in Simpson County as smoothly as possible? Or do you think the growth should be curtailed?

3. Recently the city and county fire departments merged in Simpson County, but the decision was met with controversy. Was this a good move for the county or not?
