A Meet the Candidates Event is set for Thursday, Oct. 4, beginning at 7 p.m. at the Community Room on South Broadway Street adjacent to the State Bank of Toledo main office, 100 East High Street, Toledo.
Ben Lange, 1st District Congressional; Jane Jech, Iowa Senate; Dean Fisher, Iowa House; Dennis Kucera, sheriff; and Luke Squiers, supervisor; plan to participate.
The purpose of the event is to give voters the opportunity not only to meet and learn about the candidates; but to also express their concerns or ideas to the candidates. The candidates, of course, look forward to presenting themselves and their ideas to the voters.
Voters will learn the "stands" of these candidates on issues such as taxes, debt, balanced budgets, jobs, health care, immigration, foreign policy, education, gun control, environment, terrorism, government reform, crime/drugs, energy/oil, marriage, and welfare.
Members of the audience and the news media will have the chance to address the candidates with questions. Light refreshments will be provided. The community is invited to stop by to personally "meet and greet" these candidates in a relaxed, family atmosphere setting.
