Seven local candidates running for offices that range from precinct committeeman to U.S. Representative met at the Hendricks County Government Center, Danville, Jan. 11, to file for candidacy and, according to Carol Neaville-Wright of Brownsburg, show residents that there are in fact democrats in the very red county of Hendricks.
Among the political hopefuls were Tobi Beck, Avon, running for U.S. Representative (District 4), former Avon native, Harlan Vondersaar, running for State Representative (District 28), and Brownsburg resident Carol-Neaville-Wright, running for Precinct Committeeman (Lincoln Twp.).
“Yes, Virginia, there are Democrats in Hendricks (County),” Neaville-Wright wrote in her statement. “From the U.S. Congress Indiana 4th District, to the 40th House District in Indiana, to County Councilmen, Township Board Members, Precinct Committeeman, town, city, and School Boards, we are all registering. In the 2018 election, there will be names on both sides of the ballot to ensure Democracy is at work in Hendricks County.”
Neaville-Wright, who has become committed to spreading the word about local Democratic candidates, also said there will be meet-and-greet and a silent auction Tuesday, Feb. 20, 5 – 7:30 p.m., Avon Town Hall, 6570 E. U.S. Hwy 36.
