Mayoral Election Forums Planned For Jasper; Huntingburg
JASPER (VUJC)) – Vincennes University is joining with community organizations to conduct mayoral election forums in two Dubois County cities this fall.
The Jasper mayoral candidates will be presented on Tuesday, October 20, 7:00pm (ET) in the Center for Technology, Innovation, and Manufacturing building on the VU Jasper Campus. The agreement to participate has been signed by Democratic candidate Wayne Schuetter, Republican incumbent Terry Seitz and Independent candidate Joshua Budd. The Jasper forum is hosted by Vincennes University Jasper Campus and the Rotary Club.
The candidates for Mayor of Huntingburg will be featured in a forum on Wednesday, October 21, 7:00pm (ET) in the Huntingburg Event Center. Ron Drew, Democratic candidate, and Republican incumbent Denny Spinner, have agreed to participate in the event. Joining with VU in sponsoring the Huntingburg forum is the Huntingburg Chamber of Commerce.
At each forum the candidates will deliver a short speech to articulate their vision for the city during the four-year term of office and explain their strategies to achieve that vision. Immediately following each speech the candidate will be interviewed on stage by a panel of local journalists.
In the second half of the program all candidates will return to the stage to answer questions taken in writing from the audience and presented by a moderator. Response times will be limited and each candidate will be given two minutes at the end of the program for a closing statement.
Both forums will be webcast ‘LIVE’ on NewsNow Dubois County (www.NewsNowDC.com). Both will also be broadcast live on WITZ (104.7) and WBDC (100.9). The forums will be recorded for later broadcast on WJTS-TV.
