The Candidates' Forum sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Darke County will be broadcast in its entirety on

If you were unable to attend the Candidates’ Night, please be sure go online to see the program. It lasts 1 hour and 30 minutes. Click here to watch it at YouTube or go to and in the search bar put in: Darke County League of Women Voters Fall 2012 Candidates Night to access it. (DJ Note: I've embedded it at the top of this post.)

The event begins with very brief introductions by unopposed Darke County candidates on the General Election ballot who were in attendance. Then the forum begins with the Candidates for 2nd district Court of Appeals (vote for one), Carley Ingram and Jeffrey M. Welbaum. Following that, the candidates for the 80th House District for State Representative participated in the Forum (vote for one), Richard N. Adams ( R) or Dave W. Fisher (D). The portion of the Forum for the 84th House District (vote for one) with Ronald L. Hammons (D) and Jim Buchy (R ) was not held due to a late cancellation due to illness by Mr. Hammons.

The evening concludes with two non-League members Carl Jones and Alex Warner reading the explanation of the two State Issues and the pros and cons of those issues.

Forum candidates were given two minute introductory speeches. Following that, they answered questions submitted by the audience and discussed issues. They concluded with a one minute statement.

It is hoped that when Greenville Public Access Television (GPAT), Channel 5 receives a long awaited electrical part that the program will also be broadcast there. Watch GPAT for scheduled times prior to Election Day, if and when the repair has been completed.

The League of Women Voters is a non-partisan political organization with the major purpose being to inform voters about the candidates and issues. Special thanks to Nick Schmidt of Schmidt Photography for videotaping the evening, Todd Kaiser from Bach to Rock for the sound system and for setting up the equipment, to the American Legion for use of their facility and to Jon McGreevey of Greenville Schools for his help with YouTube. VOTE, NOVEMBER 6.
