Commission members are mostly from 13 media and educational institutions who volunteer their time.
Our monetary support is from member-organizations’ foundations and other non-partisan contributions and grants. We use it to pay for statewide TV satellite service and equipment for each of our debate sites. The venues hosting the debates donate the use of their facilities and help with ticketing, security, etc.
We and the host facilities for these debates work hard to present first-rate programs that all Hoosier voters can have access to for one reason: so you can make informed choices this November.
Tim Harmon is executive editor of the South Bend Tribune and a member of the Indiana Debate Commission. He can reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
