The meeting was a meet-and-greet with Republican candidates for this year's November election. Candidates included T.J. Sneddon, running for mayor, Mary Fisher, running for clerk treasurer, Pat Heffner, Dustin Jorgensen and unopposed Sam Glover, all running for city council.
Each candidate spoke briefly on their history, their reason for running for office and their goals if they are elected.
Sneddon, who is currently a Brazil township trustee, is a lifelong resident of Brazil, graduating from Brazil High School in 1973.
During the meeting, he spoke of his plans for Brazil. One of Sneddon's goals is to mill off the asphalt of all city streets and go back to brick streets.
He also plans on increasing industries and jobs in the city.
"I think it's a great city, and that's why I want to be mayor," Sneddon said. "I think I can make it even better."
Fisher, who is the owner of Goodies Galore, said this is her first attempt at a political career field. After explaining her history working at Area Agency on Aging and owning a business, she said, "I know what it's like to make hard business decisions. Some decisions are tough to make, but I'm not afraid to make them."
Running for City Council at large, Heffner, who is currently a member of the Brazil city council, said, "The best thing I have to offer is my experience and my integrity."
Jorgensen, a fifth-grade teacher at Staunton Elementary and head coach of Northview men's soccer team, is running for city council ward four.
"I want everything to improve and that happens by starting right now," he said.
Running for city council ward two, Glover did not speak because he is unopposed.
Elections will be on Tuesday, Nov. 8.
