    The Brushy Fork debates, part of Vine Grove’s Autumn Daze Festival, is designed to give area voters a chance to hear from local, state and sometimes national candidates for public office. It’s also a chance for these candidates to gain access to some of the local and area voters from whom they seek a vote and endeavor to serve.
