Democrat Al Hagan and Republican Mark Crowe will participate in an online candidate forum Thursday night as each seeks to become the next sheriff of Bryan County.

The forum, hosted by the League of Women Voters of Coastal Georgia, will run from 6:30 to 8 p.m. and aired live on Zoom and through the League’s Facebook page.

The Bryan County News is a media sponsor of the event, which will be moderated by Dr. Bertice Berry, a local author.

To watch, you can register to Zoom at under “Events” or go to the League of Women Voters of Coastal Georgia on Facebook tonight.

The candidates are seeking to replace Sheriff Clyde Smith, who served six terms in office. Hagan ran unopposed in the Democratic primary earlier this year, while Crowe won the Republican primary outright over four other candidates. The election is Nov. 3, but early voting begins Oct. 12.

Both Crowe and Hagan are Bryan County natives who grew up in Pembroke.

Both have extensive experience in law enforcement as well as reputations for being active in the community.

They participated earlier in a forum sponsored by the Bryan County NAACP.
