This year’s 2019 General Election Candidates “Meet and Greet” Forum for positions on the Crawfordsville City Council will take place Tuesday at the Crawfordsville High School commons and auditorium. Candidates will appear beginning at 6 p.m. with a “meet and greet” followed by the forum beginning at 7 p.m.
The forum is sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County, the Crawfordsville/Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce and the Indiana Federation of Business and Professional Women to provide an opportunity for voters to hear directly from all of the candidates at one time on current issues and allow them to meet and question the candidates.
“This is a great opportunity for voters to talk with the candidates one-on-one and listen to their answers to questions from the sponsors and the audience,” said S. David Long, member of the League and event moderator. “All of the sponsors believe it’s important for voters to be well informed and this is just another way for them to gather information on the candidates and their positions on various issues that will impact the city of Crawfordsville. I encourage everyone to come with questions they feel are important to the future of our city.”
The format will allow candidates to present an opening statement, answer two questions provided by the sponsors in advance and that evening along with questions from the audience.
Information also will be available on early voting dates, times and places. Early voting begins Oct. 28. Election Day is Nov. 5.
Light refreshments will be provided by the IFBPW.
