Indiana's primary election day will be here in just a few weeks, and Brownsburg residents have many choices on the ballot. Candidates are running for clerk-treasurer and town court judge, and vying for Town Council seats in Wards 2, 3 and 4. Voters will also decide if they are in favor of the Brownsburg Community Schools' construction project and operating referendums.

In the coming weeks, you will be asked to support candidates for local office. A number of organizations will host "meet the candidate" forums and we encourage you take the opportunity to become an informed voter and make sure that you exercise your right to vote on May 5. The Town of Brownsburg does not endorse, support, or take a position in opposition to any issues or candidates on the ballot.

In fact, the Town's employee policy prohibits staff members from showing support or opposition of a candidate or conducting political activities while they are on duty or in uniform. Municipal employees equally and impartially serve the members of governing bodies, regardless of party affiliation or position. And, both the Town Manager and the Assistant Town Manager are ethically bound to refrain from political activity as members of the International City/County Management Association. You may have  seen a printed piece using a quote by Town Manager Grant Kleinhenz without his permission to imply his support for an issue. Read what he has to say about it HERE>>

Additionally, the Town does not prohibit the peaceful assembly and expression of opinion on public property as long as all laws and local ordinances are followed. Any assembly or expression of opinion only represents the views of those assembling, and not those of the Town government.

The Hendricks County Flyer offers a "Meet the Candidates" page on its website with profiles of most of the candidates. FLYER WEBSITE MEET THE CANDIDATES>>  Several also gave video interviews to the Flyer. VIEW THE VIDEOS>>

See you at the polls on May 5!
