Not So Quiet on the Candidate Front.
Certainly, we’ve heard the phrase “a crowded field of candidates” the past year, and that description is equally applicable to local races now that we are past the official filing deadline. Among the contested races (Republican primary):
County Commissioner, District 2
– Steven C. Dillinger and Charlie McMillan Jr.;
(At Large -- vote for 3) Ralph F. (Rick) McKinney, Brandon (Brad) Beaver, Sue Maki, Jeff Hern, Steven R Nation, Lyneen Burrow, John Ditslear, and Tony Scott
While “choice” is usually considered a good thing, the jury is out on this upcoming primary election for the race for the seat currently held by Rep. Susan Brooks (Indiana’s 5th Congressional District). To date, 20 Central Indiana residents believe they can do the job – 15 Republicans and 5 Democrats. It may be time to consider a better way to get to November. In the meantime, let the bean suppers and baby kissing commence!
