A MSCS District 6 Candidate Forum will be held at Riverside Baptist Church, 3590 S. Third Street, on July 16 at 11 a.m.

In 2018, there were over 50,000 voters registered in School Board District 6, which takes in ZIP Codes 38109 and 38116. But less than 14,000 people actually voted.

“That’s less than 30 percent of registered voters,” point out the Rev. Dr. Earle J. Fisher and his colleagues with UPTHEVOTE901. “We want to ensure those numbers increase in this election.”

With that goal in mind, the group is hosting a MSCS District 6 Candidate Forum at Riverside Baptist Church, 3590 S. Third Street, on July 16 at 11 a.m.

Early voting starts next week (Friday, July 15th). Election Day is August 4th.

Candidates confirmed for the forum are: Charles Everett, Timothy Green Jr., David Page, Tiffani Perry and Keith Williams.
