SHERMAN, TX -- Tonight kicked off round 2 of debates for candidates running for Grayson County office.

The debate was held at the Grayson County Courthouse and voters heard speeches from candidates for Judge, County Treasurer, and Precinct 2 Commissioner and Justice of the Peace.

County Judge candidates gave their thoughts on term limits, and keeping county residents informed on commissioner's court.

"First and foremost, put the public opinion back on the agenda," said candidate, Bill Magers. "Number two, push the county commissioner's court back on the cable and internet."

"Get the commissioner's court online and in video so that way the commissioners court, members of the court can go back and hear what we said, but employees can know and also the people," said candidate, Trent Bass.

"Both sides of the issue need to get involved," said candidate, Jim Maddock. "We need to hear from them, we need to proactively make sure we're listening."

"The position of the County Judge should be to properly inform our citizens and should be an official to make sure that the commissioner's court is in strict compliance of the open meetings act," said candidate, Gene Short.

Early voting begins on February 18th in Grayson County.
