Carmel-Clay Township to hold candidate forums


A public forum of Republican Primary candidates will be held next Tuesday and March 28 for all interested residents of Carmel-Clay Township. The Carmel-Clay Republican Club is sponsoring the forum to allow the public access to the candidates in the May 8 primary election.

The forum will be held at the Central Christian Church auditorium, 1242 W. 136th St., Carmel.

Next Tuesday at 7 p.m., candidates for U.S. Congress are invited to speak. They will be preceded by those seeking the offices of Hamilton County Treasurer and County Commissioner for District 2.

The following evening, March 28, candidates for U.S. Senate, State Representative District 24 and Hamilton County Council At-Large will be invited to speak and answer questions.

The local Republican club holds these events each election year to acquaint the public with their choices for public office.

“It’s a good opportunity for the public to see the candidates in an informal atmosphere. We provide refreshments and plenty of time to talk one-on-one with these folks,” club president Alan Potasnik said in a release.
