A Fort Wayne discussion panel will be held tonight to give residents a chance to hear from elected state officials and voice their own questions. Allen County Council Vice President Paula Hughes will host the event, while INC news anchor Ryan Elijah will serve as the moderator.
Indiana State Senator's David Long and Dennis Kruse will be on the panel along with Indiana State Representative's Randy Borror, Jeff Espich and Phyllis Pond.
The panel will be held at 7:00PM at the downtown branch of the Allen County Public Library. The public will have a chance to ask questions and the event is free.
The discussion will focus on the upcoming debate in the Indiana General Assembly over constitutional property tax caps. If the Indiana House of Representatives passes HJR1 (House Joint Resolution 1) and the Indiana Senate passes SJR1 in the next session, Hoosiers will vote on November 2nd, 2010 on whether the property tax caps become a permanent part of the Indiana Constitution. A strong turnout is expected in Fort Wayne, making it one of the larger discussion panels held on the topic.
