County judge, treasurer forums set for Wednesday

The Hood County Republican Party will host a candidates forum Wednesday evening (Jan. 31) in council chambers at Granbury City Hall, 116 W. Bridge St., for county judge candidates Kevin Myers and Ron Massingill, as well as treasurer candidates Leigh Ann McCoy and Van Vernon.

No Democrats filed for those seats, but developer Ken Hackett intends to seek the county judge post as an independent.
