The Indy Defenders of Liberty West held a Meet the Candidates forum last week.
A standing-room-only crowd listened as the three candidates running for Hendricks County Sheriff presented their information.
Current Hendricks County Sherriff Dave Galloway was also in attendance.
Rick Barr, with input from Randy Brown and Sheila Eberly, made and in-depth personal questionnaire for each of the candidates to fill out beforehand. Copies of their opinions and professional answers were given to the audience to take home.
Some of the judicial candidates also spoke.
Each candidate was asked to answer two questions for the audience. One candidate addressed legalization issues about marijuana in Indiana, another focused on the new criminal code passed on more severe crimes and sentencing changes, and another dealt with federal law being able to trump state law .
The Indy Defenders will next meet at 6:30 p.m. May 26 at the IHOP restaurant in Avon.
