On Sunday October 22, 2023, Pastor Katherine Jones Turner hosted an event that provided African American candidates in the upcoming Washington municipal election, an opportunity to speak. All of the African American candidates were in attendance with the exception of Larry Hill and John Wylie. The event opened with prayer and instruction from Pastor Jones Turner. Each candidate had eight minutes to share their platform and when everyone had a chance to speak, questions were taken from the audience. Productive conversations were had. Former mayor Willie Burns and Amethyst Wynn were two of the guests in attendance who also shared their thoughts on some of the issues brought up. You can watch the event in it's entirety on the Washington Wilkes Informer YouTube Channel.
