Political Forums to be held on WGNS RADIO July 5th and July 8th

Jul 02, 2022 at 10:30 am by WGNS

WGNS Radio will continue a long-time tradition of holding political forums for some of the more heavily contested or heated races that have received news coverage in recent months. The forums will continue to be aired “LIVE” and un-edited with the next forum scheduled for Tuesday, July 5th, followed by our final forum on Friday, July 8th. If you would like to send WGNS questions to ask our guests, we invite you to send questions that are geared towards the office they are seeking and not questions focused on the candidate who is seeking that position. You can SUBMIT candidate questions to WGNS HERE.  

The races that WGNS has focused on thus far included the Rutherford County School Board and the seat for Rutherford County Mayor. Our next forum will highlight the position of Juvenile Court Judge on Tuesday (July 5th), followed by the race for Murfreesboro City Council. 


This past May, residents voted in a variety of races to decide who to move forward as a candidate to run in the August 4, 2022 election for Rutherford County Mayor, Rutherford County Sheriff and more. The May 3rd race included names running in the Rutherford County Primary and Democratic Primary races and in the Murfreesboro City Municipal race.

On August 4, 2022, residents will have a chance to finalize their decision and vote for the next County Mayor, Sheriff, School Board Members, the Juvenile Court Judge and City Council Members, just to name a few of the current seats available. Early voting for the August 4th race will be held July 15th through July 30th. See the full 2022 Election Schedule HERE.
