Each general election, The Lima News provides this section profiling the candidates and issues. The Lima News sent questionnaires to every candidate in Allen, Auglaize, Hardin, Putnam and Van Wert counties for this election section. Candidates had the opportunity to give biographical information and discuss major issues in their races. Candidates also had an option to submit a photograph. Only names and residences identify candidates who did not return a questionnaire.

All of our property values would rise if we did something with these houses.Iím concerned about our children and all the crime and drugs. We need to bring the town back to include our children. Appreciate our children, and they will appreciate us. They will be the ones running this town some day. Why not start some street dances?
