City council, clerk / treasurer and mayoral candidates may have some disagreements, but Thursday evening’s 2015 Primary Candidate’s Forum suggested that more often than not, the candidates agree on many topics.
The forum, sponsored by the Crawfordsville and Montgomery County Chamber of Commerce, the Indiana Federation of Business and Professional Women and the League of Women Voters of Montgomery County, gave the public the opportunity to get to know the candidates. Dave Long served as moderator for the event. Clerk / Treasurer Terri Gadd, mayoral candidates Todd Barton and Jonathon Pickett, and all city council candidates except two were present. Ward 1 city council candidate James Rubner and Ward 4 candidate Jennifer Lowe were not in attendance.
The council candidates and Gadd opened the forum with introductions and platforms. They were then asked prepared questions from the sponsors of the events. In many answers, candidates expressed that they agreed with previous answers. The most common message among these candidates was simple: go out and vote on May 5.
