Tuesday night Tift County residents had the chance to hear out election candidates.

Each candidate took on questions to give the public a glimpse of their platform and what they stand for.

About 100 people from the community came out to hear what the candidates had to say.

District four school board candidates answered questions about the budget, while commission contenders were asked about the biggest challenges for their district.

Escalating crime in Tifton also came up during the forum.

Voters will have a chance to cast their vote next week.
