"Meet the Candidates", our South County Rally held on Thursday, March 16 has been deemed a success by Dave Dew, Chair of the DEC. A crowd of 80 fit comfortably in the Hobe Sound Community Center to hear candidates and candidate representatives speak about the issues and answer questions from the audience.
