County Commission Seat to be Decided
Evansville councilman Justin Elpers faces businessman Ryan Stratman
Early voting is winding down as the midterm election approaches. WNIN’s John Gibson reports:
Early voting will end in Vanderburgh County at the Civic Center at noon Monday.
Races include county officials, state legislators, and members of Congress.
On WNIN TV’s Newsmakers program, local Republican spokeswoman Ashley Davis said conservative City Councilman Justin Elpers is qualified to be a Vanderburgh County Commissioner:
"Justin has city council experience and that's something his opponent doesn't. He's worked with the city budgets which translates almost equally to the county."
Vanderburgh County Democratic Chair Cheryl Schultz touted the private sector experience of commissioner candidate Ryan Stratman:
"He has a finance background, so he's familiar with looking at budgets and running companies that have budgets and how finance works. He has worked hard, has knocked a lot of doors, made lots of phone calls."
Other contested races in Vanderburgh County include sheriff, prosecutor, and county council.
Polls will be open from 6 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Tuesday.
