Candidate Questionnaires

Keeping you informed to the matters that impact your business.

The Abilene Chamber of Commerce recently asked the 2020 candidates for County Commissioner and Sheriff a few questions. The questions come from Chamber leadership and are aligned with the core values of the Abilene Chamber of Commerce. The candidates’ answers are presented here, complete and unedited, for your information. The intent of the Chamber is to arm our members with as much information as possible, which results in informed decisions at the ballot box.
