The Covington News - - The second front - STAFF RE­PORTS

County chair­man can­di­date Keith El­lis is host­ing the first of many planned meet-and-greets from 6 to 8 p.m., Tues­day at the Mans­field Com­mu­nity House.

The meet and greet is for south­east New­ton County, and El­lis said he plans to host meet­ings in other parts of the county.

“I’m wel­com­ing any­one who would like to come, peo­ple who know me and some who don’t. I want to be able to lis­ten to them a lit­tle bit, visit with them in a way that they feel com­fort­able telling me about their is­sues. I want to hear things they see as needs, try to build re­la­tion­ships,” El­lis said.

“I’m also want to give them the feel­ing that even af­ter I’m elected I will be open to hav­ing them come see me or call me, so I can fig­ure out their is­sues and respond in the right way.”

El­lis, a Re­pub­li­can can­di­date, is the only chair­man can­di­date to an­nounce he is run­ning for of­fice to date.
