Max Jones: Forum will help you get to know spring candidates


Candidates for Vigo County Council and commissioner have been invited to be special guests at the forum.

Because there are 26 candidates for these seats in the primary, there won’t be a lot of time during the event for any of them to speak at length about issues. But there will be discussions, and each candidate participating will have an opportunity to introduce themselves and take a minute to tell the audience why they are running for public office and present their qualifications.

While the opportunity for a wide-ranging discussion of issues and an exchange of views won’t be possible in this format, candidates will be asked to answer some randomly selected questions from voters. So if you would like to submit a question for council or commissioner candidates, please send them to me via e-mail or postal mail by Monday, April 28. Find the addressees at the bottom of this column.

The questions we receive in advance, or from the audience the night of the event, will be placed in a jar and drawn out by a moderator for each candidate. Keep questions general so that any candidate can answer. There will only be 30 seconds for responses, and keeping questions simple will be appreciated.

This isn’t the best format for political discussion, but it will at least provide voters a chance to meet the candidates and get some personal exposure to them.

231-4336, by e-mail at max.jones@, or postal mail at P.O. Box 149, Terre Haute, IN 47808.
