The New Boston Chamber of Commerce will sponsor the 40th annual “Meet The Candidate Night” political forum on Saturday, February 17, 2018 starting at 6 p.m. at the New Boston High School auditorium located on Lion Drive.
Fred Milton will act as moderator. This forum should be very interesting considering the number of candidates in various categories. Boy Scout Troop 36 will present the flags and conduct the Pledge of Allegiance.
All candidates registered with the Bowie County Voters Registrar are invited to attend. 
Candidates on the ballot in voting Precinct 14 & 18 will be allowed to speak for 3 minutes, to express their reason why you should vote for them. 
A “straw poll” will be taken after all the candidates have spoken.
Meet the candidate started in 1976 with a large attendance.
There are 27 candidates on the straw poll.
There will be candidates in attendance from other precincts as well.
A chili supper will be provided by the New Boston Volunteer Fire Dept. who will start serving at 5:00 p.m. Donations will be accepted and all proceeds will go to the the New Boston Volunteer Fire Dept.
