The Macon County Democratic Men's Club hosted a forum for candidates running in the Democratic Party primary. I attended and recorded video of the candidate speeches. The full video of the event is below, and below that, are the individual speeches separated out by candidate, with the exception of Vic Perry, who is running unopposed for Clerk of Superior Court of Macon County. His was the first speech and was only 28 seconds long. It's no wonder he is running unopposed.

I'd appreciate any help you can provide so that I can continue to provide complete video coverage of local government meetings. Check out http://www.patreon.com/maconmedia for more information. A dollar a month would mean great deal to me and help me obtain better equipment and cover more meetings and advance to the next stage in my plans for a digital news platform for Macon County.
