Meet Local Candidates for Office

Check out the League of Women Voters newsletter for details on the candidate forum.  You can also view CATS video from the forum.

A forum series presented by the League of Women Voters of Bloomington & Monroe County at the Library allows you to see real live candidates for local public office. Local government often affects our lives more than federal and state government, so the forums are your chance to get involved by hearing what the candidates have to say and asking them questions directly.

County Council District 1:

  • T. Ann Boehm (R)
  • Shellie Yoder (D)
