I am rolling out a new series of interviews today as we look toward the election in November. Â The series will be posted every Sunday morning.
The Allen County Superior Court Criminal Division Judge election is a non-partisan election. Candidates do not claim a party affiliation, are limited in the amount of money they may raise and spend and usually suffer low voting numbers simply because they are at the bottom of the ballot and are missed by those who cast straight-party ballots.
This race has been interesting thus far and this could be one of those years when a judges race in Allen County actually turns in some record numbers. The incumbent is Judge Ken Scheibenberger, whose candidacy has been challenged and will be decided in a hearing on September 2nd in Indianapolis. We did not discuss this controversy in Judge Scheibenberger’s interview. For one thing, I felt the local media has provided enough coverage and secondly, it’s not in the arena of what I try to present on this blog/website.
I want to thank all three candidates for their time and patience. In the case of the Wendy Davis interview, it was filmed toward the end of June. However, equipment difficulties and three major festivals at work, kept me from posting and completing these in a more timely fashion.
I will have a follow up of sorts to these interviews in the next week or two. In the mean time, you may locate the interviews on the following pages:
