TIPPECANOE COUNTY, Ind. (WLFI) - Thursday night there was a Meet the Candidate event for those running for sheriff in Tippecanoe County. However, the event turned more into a debate.

The event was originally hosted by candidate John " Woody" Ricks. Then Sheriff Barry Richard and Jason Dombkowski heard about the event and attended.

Ricks made the comment at the beginning of the night that he was "going to take the high road" and welcomed the other two candidates to attend.

The event was held at the Dayton Town Hall.

Each candidate had ten minutes to discuss their platform. People then had the chance to ask questions.

Some of the topics discussed were drugs in the Tippecanoe County community, the Second Amendment and officer training. There were a few heated moments between the candidates.

However, Lafayette resident Juanita Kruger said it's during those discussions where she learns more about the candidates. Thursday night was her third event where she's had the chance to hear the three candidates speak. She said it's helping her make a decision on election day.

"I think I've almost gotten to the point where I know. It's been very enlightening," said Kruger. "Each one of them bring more to the table and it helps make that decision."

All three candidates will be at another event Monday. It will be at Brokerage Brewing Company in West Lafayette.
