The Hoosier Environmental Council is hosting a debate between the candidates for lieutenant governor, Thursday, Oct. 11 at 6:30 p.m. at the Indiana History Center, 450 West Ohio Street, downtown Indy.
Given the fragility of our ecosystem — as evidenced by our recent drought — it’s even more imperative we elect leaders who will address environmental concerns, instead of shying away from them.
Our governors have expressed their points of view, so what about their running mates?
Unfortunately, you won’t get everyone’s perspective.
Slated to debate are: Democratic candidate, Senator Vi Simpson, and Libertarian candidate,
Representative Sue Ellspermann, the Republican lieutenant gubernatorial nominee, has declined to participate in this event. If you’d like to try and cajole her into it, you can reach her via email@example.com to see if she’ll change her mind.
The debate will begin with questions crafted by HEC and its partners. Audience questions will follow.
The event is being co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of Indiana, the Indiana Public Health Association, the Indiana Citizens’ Alliance for Transit, and the Indiana Conservation Alliance.
