Rotary Club Candidate Forum a Success

Editor,

Almost 70 people attended the Rising Sun Rotary sponsored Candidates Forum on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at the Senior Center in Rising Sun.

President Angel Marks greeted everyone and introduced Rotarian Lane Siekman as the Moderator. The candidates for the Sheriff race, as well as several School Board candidates and County Commissioner candidates appeared, as did the candidates for Recorder. This was not a debate.

All candidates were very cordial as they presented what their views were for the positions they were seeking. Questions were taken from the audience and read by the Moderator. A coin toss was done when deciding who would speak and answer questions first.

Light refreshments were served. The audience was jokingly reminded that no pancakes were available until the first Saturday in March, when the annual Rotary Pancake breakfast fundraiser would be held at the Senior Center. The Rotary Club would like to thank everyone who attended the night’s event. The Rotary encourages everyone to exercise their right to vote for the candidates of their choice.

Rotary Club meets every Monday at 12noon at the Hickory House

All are welcome.

Rotary Club President Angel Marks
