Several Democratic candidates for state constitutional offices, including the party’s gubernatorial candidate, Jared Henderson, and the party’s candidate for Arkansas’ 4th Congressional District in the U.S. House, Hayden Shamel, will speak at the October 24 meeting of the Southeast Arkansas Political Animals Club.

The forum-style meeting will be held at 12 p.m. in Monticello at the Western Sizzlin Restaurant.

“We are pleased to serve as an outlet for these candidates to communicate with the people of southeast Arkansas,” said John Davis, chairman of the Southeast Arkansas Political Animals Club. “The SEARK Political Animals Club is and always will be non-partisan and aims to raise awareness of political issues and enhance civic engagement in our region. In addition to inviting Democratic candidates, we have also reached out to Republican candidates for the same offices, but they have not yet been able to settle on a date during this busy time of the campaign season.”
