(BEDFORD) - Indiana Secretary of State Todd Rokita made an appearance before the Bedford Kiwanis club early yesterday afternoon to discuss changes in Indiana electoral procedure, and also made a separate official endorsement in the Bedford mayoral race.
Secretary Rokita told WBIW News that he is pleased Indiana is moving toward including more technology in the state electoral process, but assures Hoosiers, their vote is safe and will be counted.
While he was in town, Rokita also took the time to make an endorsement of Republican Jean Williams for the mayoral race during a separate interview, saying Williams understands economic growth is key, and that she knows what Bedford's competition is.
Independent mayoral candidate Shawna Girgis told WBIW News in response she is only interested in the endorsement of the voter, and that the people endorsing Williams can't vote in Bedford anyway. Democratic candidate Alan "Big Al" Craig could not be reached for comment by press time.
Clarification: The Bedford Kiwanis International organization did not invite Secretary Rokita to make an endorsement of a mayoral candidate during the event. The endorsement was made during a separate interview. If further clarification is required, e-mail email@example.com.
