COLUMBIA — Around 25 people attended a candidate forum Saturday at the J.W. "Blind" Boone Center. Central Columbia Get Out The Vote (CCGOTV) hosted the forum, so residents could question candidates for both the county commissioner and assessor positions and voice their concerns - concerns that differ from those of residents living in the more rural parts of the county.
