GOSHEN — Four Democratic women filed Thursday to run for Elkhart County Council at-large, saying not enough women hold public office.

Zanzer Anderson, Conchatta Eldridge, Susie Meeks-Wade and Oxana Werbiansky claim the lack of representation of women at any level of government results in a democratic breakdown. When more women are in leadership roles, the sooner society will be able to advance as a whole, they said.

Has there ever been 4 less qualified people to put their names on a ballot? This is a joke right?
