[January 10, 2008]  Candidates for the Feb. 5 primary election spoke to a small crowd on Wednesday. The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce hosted the forum at the Logan County Health Department at 7:30 a.m.

Candidates, all Republican, were allowed three minutes to state their positions and then a question-and-answer time was allowed from the audience.

The two congressional candidates who came to the forum were given priority, as they had traveled a distance to present their positions and had more traveling to do that day. One was present at the start and the other came later. Between them the local candidates for each office spoke in alphabetical order.

Speaker order:

04:00 Jim McConoughey, candidate for the 18th Congressional District

18:46-28:08 Timothy J. Huyett, candidate for state's attorney

28:19-35:14 Michael McIntosh, candidate for state's attorney

36:48-38:55 Carla Bender, uncontested candidate for circuit clerk

38:59-42:07 Bill Martin, uncontested candidate for county board District 1

42:32-46:41 Pat O'Neill, uncontested candidate for county board District 5

46:50-51:36 Terry Carlton, uncontested candidate for county board District 6
