Allegheny Mountain Radio hosted Candidate Forums for the county and state election. Magistrate candidates answered five questions asked by AMR Pocahontas County reporter Tim Walker and The Pocahontas Times reporter Suzanne Stewart.

The candidates began with opening statements:

Question #1: Why are you running for Magistrate?

Question #2: What unique qualifications, education, experience or judicial temperament would you bring to the position of Magistrate that would make you more qualified than your opponents?

Question #3: Do you believe in leniency for those charged with marijuana possession or those charged with marijuana distribution? Due to technical difficulties, this question was not captured on video. The audio is accompanied by a photo.

Question #4: Would your judicial philosophy as a Magistrate be strict or more lenient and understanding? Due to technical difficulties, this question was not captured on video. The audio is accompanied by a photo.

Question #5: What is your understanding of the duties and responsibilities of Magistrates in West Virginia?

Closing Statements: Due to technical difficulties, the closing statements were not captured on video. The audio is accompanied by a photo.
