Annual Long Beach Political Debate returns June 24

Election season is ramping up with the third annual Long Beach Political Debate set for Saturday, June 24 on the Mississippi Gulf Coast. The event, hosted by The Gazebo Gazette, will be held from 12-3 p.m. at the Long Beach Senior Center.

The rules are that all statewide and Harrison County candidates will be given three minutes each to speak about their campaign going into the August primary and what their vision is for the office they are running for. If all the candidates in a specific race agree and wish to move into a debate-style portion of the event, moderators will be available to oversee the conversation and take questions from the audience.

“The Long Beach Political Debate has quickly grown into one of the premiere political events in Mississippi and we look forward to another great year,” said Hunter Dawkins, publisher of The Gazebo Gazette. “Hearing from the candidates before the primaries is vital. This event gives voters a chance to hear out each candidate prior to the primaries, which at the end of the day, is vital when it comes to making those tough decisions on the ballot.”

Several gubernatorial, lieutenant governor, and secretary of state candidates have already confirmed their attendance. If you’re a candidate and would like to RSVP for the event, please contact the newspaper at or by calling (228)224-6781.
