(ANGOLA) - If Tuesday nights "Meet the Candidates" event on the Trine University campus is any indication, the recent controversies over Economic Development Corporation Board meetings and who should be in the charge of County Communications could lead to a very intense race for a seat on the Steuben County Commission this fall. Incumbent Loretta Smart is facing a challenge in the May 6th Republican Primary from Lynne Liechty. The winner will face Democrat Todd Gorman in November. Both Liechty and Gorman felt E.D.C. Board meetings should remain private. Smart would only say the county attorney was advising the county on the open door policy. Liechty and Gorman were also in agreement that County Communications should be a division of the Sheriffs Department. Gorman blasted the recent Commissioners decision to turn down Sheriff Tim Troyer's request to run County 9-1-1 saying it was "wrong and really incomprehensible." Smart defended the Commissioners decision. She said it was beyond the scope of one person to be both the Sheriff and County Communications Director.

Meanwhile, Republican candidates for County Prosecutor Don Shively and Jeremy Musser both agreed methamphetamine was the biggest problem facing Steuben County.

In the race for Pleasant Township trustee, incumbent Craig Rice is facing a challenge in the Republican Primary from Lisa Boone. The winner will face Democrat Judy Rowe in November. Rice talked about things he has done to improve poor relief since he took office. Boone said she knows what those seeking assistance are going through since she had to ask for help at one time. Rowe said the system can be made better if requirements were loosened.

Also on hand were Republican County Council candidates Will Howard and Justin Stouder.
