(Editor's Note: The Daily Democrat will provide additional coverage of the candidate forum in upcoming editions.)
Fifteen men and one woman who are candidates for state, county, and township offices in the November 2 election in Adams County addressed the public Thursday night in a forum held at Riverside Center.
Some 40 to 50 people attended the forum provided by the Decatur Rotary Club, Adams Memorial Hospital, and First Bank of Berne.
The most local race in the November 2 election drawing the most attention is is for county sheriff, with three candidates.
All three — Republican Shane Rekeweg, a fulltime deputy sheriff; Democrat Jon Fuhrman, a longtime reserve deputy sheriff; and Independent Terry Nevil, a fulltime deputy sheriff — spoke at Thursday night's Decatur Rotary Club candidate forum in Riverside Center.
