ECTOR COUNTY, TX (KWES) - The Ector County Republican Women's Monthly Luncheon will be hosting a forum Monday, September 21.

The purpose is for the public to meet the three candidates who are interested in becoming the next Ector County Judge.

The three candidates are Ron Eckert of the Ron Eckert Law Firm, Clay George of the District Attorney's Office, and Chet Bales, a local businessman.

The position for Ector County Judge opened up after the Hon. Judge Susan Redford accepted a position with the Texas Association of Counties.

"Once again, this is another opportunity for the membership and the public to meet this candidates who are willing to serve our community and hear firsthand why they are the best person for the position. Judge Susan Redford has done a great job and it will be a big shoe to fill," said Debi Hays, President of the Ector County Republican Women.

According to Ector County Republican Women, each candidate will give a timed opening and closing statement, followed by questions prepared by the organization.

Ector County Commissioners will be in charge of electing the new judge. This is the public's chance to hear what the candidates have to say, and to contact their commissioner to let them know what they think.

The forum will be from 11:30 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Odessa Regional Medical Center Community Room, located at 520 E. 6th Street in Odessa.

There is an optional lunch buffet available for $12.
