Enjoy in moderation
One week from tonight, we will know the Democratic and Republican parties' choices for the November 15 general election in Senate District 10.
One week later, the two nominees will face me* in a
guitar-shredding showdown candidate forum hosted by the Brainerd Unity Group. The group has invited me to moderate the event, and I have accepted their kind offer. This will be a new experience.
*More importantly, the candidates will face a group of concerned District 10 voters.
So, for reasons other than as a voter and a blogger, I have an interest in the outcome of next week's primaries. Will it be Andy vs. Oscar? Ken vs. the other Oscar? John Wolfe vs. Travis? I'll need to know the combination as soon as possible, so I can prepare my strategy and approach. (Should I open with the Ibanez, or with the acoustic? When's the right moment to break out the bari?)
My goal in this forum will be to acquire for the citizens of Brainerd (and any of our friends who drop by) the goods they need from the candidates in order to make the best-informed decision in this important election. I welcome the opportunity to try something new, and to take an active role in the decision-forming process; and I will of course blog about it afterward.
Stay tuned for more details.
