MORE TRUTH About the “Forum”
Why You Won’t See All the City Council Candidates at Tonight’s “Forum”
Of the six candidates, only the three incumbents are participating tonight and here is why:
- This is NOT a Town-sponsored event. No one will say who solicited sponsors for this event.
- The date and time of the forum was set without consulting all six candidates. The three challengers were just told when the event was going to be. No one offered to find a date when all six candidates could be here.
- The candidates have been asking for weeks: who is the organizer, who chose the moderator, who set the format? No one will answer these questions.
- The format and process for asking questions seems to be designed to benefit the incumbents. Paul Walden is away on business, Al is out-of-town, so Jim Duffy chose not to come since the timing and structure is unfair to all.
The other candidates would be happy to visit with you, personally, to share their views about the future governance of Addison:
