ALLIANCE, Ohio – As an important mid-term election draws near, the University of Mount Union’s Regula Center for Public Service and Civic Engagement, in collaboration with its Department of Political Science and International Studies, will be hosting a Meet the Candidates night on Thursday, October 18 at 5:30 p.m.

The event, which will be held in the Hoover-Price Campus Center on Mount Union’s campus, will provide community members the opportunity to get to know each of the candidates that are running for positions in the Ohio legislature and Ohio Supreme Court and their platforms as the election approaches.

Each candidate will have time to share about themselves followed by a question-and-answer session. The event will be moderated by students from the Department of Political Science and International Studies at Mount Union.

Audience members will have the opportunity to ask candidates about their political careers, experiences and hopes for the future of Ohio. As the mid-term election cycle draws near, attendees will have a chance to ask questions about serious issues facing Ohio in a town hall setting.

Participating candidates include Constance Gadell-Newton, governor; Melody J. Stewart, justice of Supreme Court; Ken Harbaugh, representative to Congress; Andrew King, judge of the Court of Appeals; Lauren Friedman, state senator; Lorraine Wilburn, state representative; James Haavisto, state representative; Cassie Gabelt, state representative; Reggie L. Stoltzfus, state representative; Natalie R. Haupt, judge of the Court of Common Pleas and Linda Litman, Stark County auditor. There will also be a representative from the office of Richard Cordray, candidate for governor and the office of Alan Harold, candidate for Stark County auditor. Candidates are looking forward to the opportunity to share with the community and meet their constituents.
