On Thursday, August 16th at Valley National Bank's Highway 280 branch in Alexander City, the Lake Martin Young Professionals hosted the second event in its Access to the Issues series. The series is designed to update the YP membership and other members of the community on important issues and topics. With 2018 hosting many important statewide elections, we decided to invite candidates running to represent Alexander City and District 81 to take part in a town hall forum. Candidates Jeremy "JJ" Jeffcoat and Ed Oliver introduced themselves to the audience and answered questions on a variety of topics including education, healthcare, infrastructure, economic development, workforce, criminal justice and prison reform, ethics and corruption, agriculture and others.
