Nine of the thirteen candidates for Congressional District 14 spoke at the chamber’s Candidate Forum. Dr. Monroe, President of Lamar – Port Arthur was the moderator. Over one hundred chamber members and friends listened to each candidate’s speech while enjoying lunch at the Holiday Inn in Port Arthur. The candidates and guests had time to mingle and visit before and after the event. The next day the courts ruled on the final boundaries of the district which will include the counties of Jefferson, Galveston and part of Brazoria. Hopefully the election will be around May 29 and we can get about the business of sending a new Congressman to Washington.
