The "Face to Face" forums are only for candidates in the 2014 May 20 primary election and all have been contacted so far with the exception of the two not pictured below. Please make them aware of this event if you know them! Also these photos are all we have to work with, therefore, any of the candidates may provide ClayCoNews with a different photo and we'll be happy to replace the current one with it.
