Three of the five candidates for the 5th Congressional District will meet in a couple weeks for their first joint appearance in front of Republican voters. The Howard County Republican Party is announcing that Susan Brooks, David McIntosh and John McGoff will all participate their Century Club candidate breakfast on January 14 at 8:45 at the Elite Banquet Center in Kokomo, located at 2820 S. LaFountain St.
According to the release sent out by Craig Dunn Howard County GOP Chairman, incumbent Dan Burton declined to participate. There is no word yet on whether candidate Jack Lugar will appear at the forum either. FYI, I will be there to act as moderator. The event is open to the public, however you must RSVP by January 12.
Questions or RSVPs for the Fifth District Congressional Forum may be addressed to: Craig Dunn-Howard County Republican Chairman, Telephone: 765-457-1134 W. or 765-252-8643 C. Email inquiries to: firstname.lastname@example.org
I want to say this is the first time the candidates will meet in a public forum to debate the issues, so it should be interesting.
