Young Republicans and Young Democrats are holding a student-led political debate this Thursday, April 5 at 6 p.m. at the Warren County High School auditorium. This event is for all candidates for circuit court clerk, county commission, trustee, register of deeds, county executive and sheriff.Psychology teacher Laura Lippe, who doubles as the faculty advisor for the Young Republicans, says the Young Republican and Young Democrat clubs were created when the students and social studies teachers saw a need for a political outlet. “Students were interested in politics and government, but had no outlet for that enthusiasm and curiosity,” said Lippe.
