Candidates running for two seats on Kershaw County Council fielded questions Thursday in the second of three “educated voter forums” presented by the Kershaw County Chamber of Commerce and the Kershaw County Teacher Forum at Camden High School. Only two candidates participated in Thursday’s forum. Republican Dennis Arledge is running for the council seat to represent District 5, which is being left open by current Councilman Stephen Smoak, who is not seeking re-election.
