SCEDC Candidate Forum Series


The South County EDC invites you to meet candidates looking to
serve our South County communities.

Sessions Dates: Every Wednesday from September - October
When: Every Wednesday at 4PM via Zoom

This digital series will provide you with an opportunity to hear from and have a dialog with those looking to fill important roles throughout the region. Our series will kick off on September 14th and run through October. Sessions will take place on zoom at 4 PM each Wednesday during this period.  

The South County Economic Development Council is a non partisan organization and does not support or endorse candidates. This series is designed to foster a conversation about important issues in our communities. Helping connect our communities, residents, and businesses with community leaders is at the very core of what we do.  

We hope you will be able to join us for this very important series of discussions.
