The Escapee's held a political forum on February 12, 2010 where local candidates were allowed to get up and address the audience that was mostly made up of Escapees. Two of the speakers were the candidates for the office of Polk County Judge (John Thompson and Kathie Freeman). You can hear what they had to say by clicking each image below.
