County News Online Candidate Questionnaire

Last month, County News Online sent out a questionnaire to each of the candidates in three contested Primary elections: Darke County Clerk of Courts, Darke County Juvenile/Probate Judge and Darke County Commissioner.

Candidates were given four questions with approximately a month in which to respond. The questions were as follows:  1) Personal and professional information about yourself;  2) Describe the duties, as you see them, for the office you are seeking, and your qualifications for fulfilling those duties;  3) What do you feel are the top three challenges of the office that you can address better than your opponent;  and 4) Summarize why you should receive the vote on March 6.

The deadline was midnight Sunday, Feb. 12, for the responses to be emailed to CNO, and the required format was MS Word. Candidates were advised that late responses, or responses in formats that could not be read would be discarded. Every effort was made to assure delivery of the questionnaire to each candidate.

Answers were to be limited to 100 words or less for each question. Responses are being published today (Clerk of Courts), Wednesday (Juvenile/Probate Judge) and Thursday (Commissioner). Placement will be side-by-side, left-to-right, alphabetically by last name.

Answers to questions are being published exactly as received with no editing for content or grammar.

The public is invited to the annual Darke County Republican Mens Club Saturday at 8 a.m., Employee Cafeteria of the Brethren Retirement Community, at which time all Republican candidates for public office – contested and uncontested – will be invited to speak to those present. There is a $6 charge for a buffet breakfast, so come early and enjoy the food and discussion time with other members and guests prior to the beginning of the meeting.
