The Whitley County UNITE Coalition will be hosting a roundtable discussion with county attorney candidates at 6 p.m. Monday at the Williamsburg City Hall.
Incumbent Don Moses faces Bob Hammons, a former two-term county attorney and assistant county attorney, as well as new comer Graham Trimble. Each filed to run in the Whitley County attorney’s race and will appear on the republican ballot for the May 22 primary election.
The discussion is open to the public, according to Whitley County UNITE Coalition Secretary Wayne Brooks, who said he feels it is a great way for the citizens to meet the candidates.
“We hope the public comes out to hear the candidates speak. Events like this are important when it comes to elections because this will give the public a chance to get three different perspectives on the county attorney’s office,” Brooks said.
Adam Sulfridge will moderate the event. Though no one knows just what questions the moderator will ask, Brooks said he fully expects a few “hot button” topics to be brought up.
“I suspect Adam will ask some questions about DUI cases in Whitley County,” Brooks said.
Each candidate will be given a block of time to respond to questions asked by the moderator and after he finishes with his questions, the public will have an opportunity to ask questions of their own, according to Brooks.
This is the second roundtable discussion sponsored by the Whitley County UNITE Coalition, according to Brooks.
“We had a really good response when we did this with the jailer’s race and hope to have another good turnout at this public discussion,” Brooks said.
