First Friday luncheon focuses on upcoming primary elections

LUFKIN, TX (KTRE) -

Friday afternoon at the Angelina County Chamber of Commerce First Friday Luncheon, County Judge Wes Suiter was the keynote speaker and gave a State of the County presentation.

 Suiter briefly touched on the county budget and tax rate but his main topic was the operation of county government and the duties of each elected official.

Suiter said he wanted to present the duties of each official and how each office operates so voters can be educated when it's time to vote.

"We've got a big election coming up here in March, a lot of contested offices. We know we're going to see new elected officials in our county court of law and our county clerks offices so I want the public to be educated, go out and get to know the candidates," said Suiter.

The Angelina County primary elections are March 4th.
