[March 19, 2012]
The Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of
Commerce has in the past hosted forums for all the candidates
running for certain elected offices. This year the chamber's
legislative affairs committee decided that in lieu of a forum, they
would issue a questionnaire to all three candidates for the open
county board seats. The three candidates running for office are Jan
Schumacher, Robert Farmer and Daniel Meyer. There are two seats
available for this three-person race.
"The purpose of this questionnaire is to provide a nonpartisan
opportunity for the candidates to share their ideas and to highlight
the differences in their individual platforms," said Andi Hake,
executive director of the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce.
"It is also intended to further educate and engage the citizens of
Logan County in the democratic process. We want well-informed voters
in Logan County when they come out to vote on Tuesday, March 20."
The chamber of commerce will not endorse or promote any particular
candidate or party affiliation. Each candidate's answers with the
questions will be posted on the chamber website, published in the
chamber's weekly e-flash, and a news release containing the
questions and answers has been sent to all local media.
Each candidate was given the same questionnaire and the same
amount of time to submit answers to the questions. The
questionnaires with each candidate's answers are provided along with
this news release. Robert Farmer was the only candidate who chose
not to respond to the candidate questionnaire.
