Public invited to submit questions to candidates

TELL CITY – A Thursday forum will give Perry County voters preparing to go to the polls a chance to hear candidates’ views on a variety of topics.

The forum, sponsored by the Perry County Chamber of Commerce and The Perry County News, will be held at the Tell City Knights of Columbus beginning at 6:30 p.m. The event will be broadcast by WTCJ-FM radio,105.7.

Candidates in contested races for commissioner, county council, surveyor and Tell City-Troy Township School Board will talk about their reasons for seeking elected office. They’ll also answer questions.

“We know a lot of voters are interested in the races for president, governor and Congress, but the community faces important local decisions Nov. 6,” Editor Vince Luecke said. “We hope for a large crowd.”

The forum will also help the newspaper’s staff prepare for its profiling of candidates in the issues before the election.

The public can submit questions they’d like to have asked of candidates. Questions can be sent to The News at P.O. Box 309, Tell City, IN 47586, e-mailed to editor@perrycountynews.com or dropped off at the newspaper office.

People submitting questions will not be identified. Similar questions may be combined or edited.
