Two Knightstown Incumbents Shun Banner’s Candidate Questionnaire
October 17, 2007 - Two incumbent Republicans on the Knightstown Town Council have declined to fill out questionnaires The Banner sent to the seven candidates running for the three seats that are up for election this fall.
Both Council President David Glenn and Council Vice President Nate Hamilton, who represent Wards 4 and 1, respectively, opted not respond to the questionnaire. Glenn, who said he was out of town when the questionnaire was first sent to him last month, said he wasn't happy with some of the questions asked by The Banner.
"There was some on there that I kind of thought were too personal, really," Glenn said on Tuesday. As an example, he pointed to a question where The Banner asked candidates if they had been happy with legal advice the town's attorneys had provided over the past four years. "I just didn't want to give my opinion on some of that stuff," he said.
When asked Monday why he didn't complete a questionnaire, Hamilton said, "Because you're asking too many damn questions, that's why."
Both Glenn and Hamilton are expected to participate in a candidates’ forum at the Hoosier Gym on Thursday evening. The forum, which starts at 6:30 p.m., will feature six of the seven candidates running for council seats for Wards 1, 3 and 4. Incumbent Cort Swincher, a Republican who represents Ward 3, is not expected to attend the forum due work obligations.
