Candidates invited to forum

The Brazil Times, Clay County Farm Bureau and the Clay County Chamber of Commerce are planning a candidate’s forum on Oct. 9 at 6 p.m. at the 4-H Fairgrounds on S.R. 59 south of Brazil.
We have invited 8th District Congressional candidates John Hostettler and Brad Ellsworth, 44th District State Representative candidates Amos Thomas and Richard Thompson and Clay County Sheriff candidates Mike Heaton, Rob Gambill and Larry Pierce to participate in one-hour question-and-answer sessions.
Other candidates on the Nov. 7 ballot in Clay County will be given two minutes each to introduce themselves. The public is urged to attend.
Candidates are asked to RSVP to Editor, The Brazil Times, 100 N. Meridian St. Brazil, IN 47834 or by e-mail to or by phone to (812) 446-2216, ext. 231 as soon as possible.
All candidates are also invited to submit an article introducing themselves “in their own words” with a photo of their choice. Articles will be published in the order received, up to one week before the Nov. 7 general election.
