Hopefuls sound off at forum



June 18, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Having declared their races only earlier in the week, candidates Saturday should be forgiven for their hastily prepared remarks at the morning forum sponsored by Allen County Farm Bureau.

In his race for State Representative, Bob Grant, D-Frontenac, said he was a big supporter of education, “because I wasn’t smart enough to continue my own education.”

Grant said the recent increase by $60 per pupil, “puts us up to 1995 funding for school districts. We’re not catching up in what has been lost for education by any means,” he said.
