Chamber organizes Lawrence mayoral town hall


The Greater Lawrence Chamber of Commerce will present a mayoral town hall with Republican incumbent Steve Collier and Democratic candidate Jamar Cobb-Dennard at 7 p.m. Oct. 10 at Lawrence Central High School, 7300 E. 56th St.

Chamber president and CEO Trace Yates said the event marks the first time the chamber has conducted a town hall for candidates.


“We feel this is a significant, important conversation for our community. The City of Lawrence is clearly the anchor for Lawrence Township and, consequently, an important part of the economic engine of Lawrence Township and the northeastern metropolitan area,” Yates said. 

The chamber will not allow questions from the public during the event, but the public can submit questions before the event at Brandon Smith of WFYI Public Radio and Television will moderate. Admission is free but RSVPs are required.

“The City of Lawrence is on solid financial footing and has made important investments into economic development and community infrastructure,” Yates said. “Our chamber is very bullish on a bright and prosperous future and can’t wait to see what’s in store for our chamber members and community.”

Council candidates for the City of Lawrence Common Council and the Indianapolis City County Council Lawrence Township candidates will be available for a meet-and-greet at a later date during the Oct. 17 Pancakes and Politics Breakfast Connections. For more, visit
