This year’s 2018 General Election Candidates “Meet and Greet” Forum will take place on Thursday, Sept. 27, at the Crawfordsville High School commons and auditorium. Candidates for State Representative, County Commissioner and County Council will appear beginning as 6 p.m. with a “meet and greet” followed by the forum beginning at 7 p.m. All other candidates have also been invited to attend and interact with voters during the evening.
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”, commented S. David Long, Vice President of the League. “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 Montgomery County. It’s also a good opportunity for voters learn the difference in responsibilities between the Commissioners and Council, which are often confused. I encourage everyone to come with questions they feel are important to the future of our county.”
Question of the Week:

The League of Women Voters typically has a debate or candidate forum each election. The Paper of Montgomery County has also sponsored a more traditional debate on occasion. This year, there was a report that some Republican Party candidates were not going to attend the League’s event that is slated for Thursday, although it now appears they will. The question this week is are local debates worthwhile?

EXHIBIT: Step Into the Painting: Indiana History & Culture Through Art July 21 – Oct. 27, 2018 With an exciting new twist on learning about daily living in Indiana in the 1800’s and early 1900’s, the Haan Museum of Indiana Art invites guests to view art in a different way. The Museum selected paintings by some of Indiana’s most important artists, showing people engaged in a variety of activities from Indiana’s past, such as feeding chickens; playing the piano and cello; the circus coming; a child helping her mother do laundry; girls carrying buckets of milk; and Indians playing the “Moccasin Game”. Historic art can teach us a lot about our past, and the exhibition at the Haan Museum provides an opportunity to feel what it was like to live in Indiana before our grandparents were born. Admission: $10 for adults; $5 for ages 5-17. Find more details at Museum Hours: Wednesday - Saturday, 1-4 PM
