MOUNT VERNON — Sharing his experiences during his first term as Ohio Senator and answering questions of concern from the public was Senator Kris Jordan-R, Delaware, on Thursday evening when he was guest of the Knox County 912 Group at the Knox County Career Center.
The evening began with executive board member Mary Garn reviewing the nine principles and 12 values of the 912 Group. Garn shared statistics from the 2013 election where among the 60,700 county residents, there were 46,100 eligible voters and 38,000 registered to vote. Garn said it was “shameful” that only 11,500 people actually voted. She urged everyone to encourage others to vote, reminding them that 47 times in Ohio an election was decided by one vote.
