Ten Candidates Confirm Participation in Taxpayers Forum

web posted May 1, 2008
AIKEN – The Aiken County Taxpayers Association has received confirmation from ten candidates running for seats in selected S.C. House and S.C. Senate districts about participating in the Taxpayers Forum scheduled for Thursday, May 1. The invitation mailed to each candidate stated that only those candidates who provide confirmation that they will attend-by no later than noon on Monday, April 28-will be permitted to participate. This event marks the third year in a row that the Aiken County Taxpayers Association has held its non-partisan Taxpayers Forum.

On Tuesday, June 10, voters in numerous South Carolina House and Senate districts will go to the polls to elect the people whom they think will best serve them on the state level. Among the most important things that state legislators do is develop and vote on a state budget. Given a national economy that is weakening and the State of South Carolina facing deep budget cuts, it is more important than ever to know the fiscal policies of candidates running for state-level offices. Voters will be able to hear candidates' positions on a variety of tax issues at the forum.

The following candidates (listed in alphabetical order by last name) have confirmed their participation:
* For the S.C. Senate District 24 seat, Greg Ryberg's substitute and Jason Whinghter;
* For the S.C. Senate District 25 seat, Greg Anderson;
* For the S.C. House District 81 seat, Brad Boni, John V. Kelly, Scott F. Singer and Tom Young; and
* For the S.C. House District 83 seat, Judy Hamilton, Don Smith and Jim Whitehead.

During the Taxpayers Forum, candidates will be asked:
* what they want to accomplish for taxpayers;
* what top three fiscal concerns they have regarding state government; and
* questions submitted by concerned taxpayers.

The Aiken County Taxpayers Association will hold its non-partisan Taxpayers Forum on Thursday, May 1, 2008 at 7:00 p.m. at the Aiken County Council building (736 Richland Avenue West, Aiken). It is free and open to the public.

Vicki Simons, spokeswoman for the Aiken County Taxpayers Association, was pleased that ten of the fourteen candidates invited have chosen to participate in this year's Taxpayers Forum. "We look forward to hearing each candidate's position on state-level fiscal matters," she said.
