Candidates meet voters in Westport


Sandcreek Township, where Westport is located, had four nominees for office in attendance at Thursday’s event. Cheryl Laws Asher (R) said she has 36 years of experience in the community and will work to help struggling people get by if elected. Dan Wenning (R) said his business experience will help him if elected, adding that he knows the importance of helping people. Gail Snyder (D) said she has significant experience with nearly every county office and thinks that taxpayers need to come first. Incumbent Sandi Gatewood (D) said she was overwhelmed when she took the office but is well accustomed to the job now, loves it and wants to continue.

As the speeches came to a close, candidates mingled among the crowd to answer any questions voters may have had.

Bartlett closed the event by saying, “I want Westport to affect the county, Decatur County to affect the state and Indiana to affect the country.”
