BULLETIN: New Twist in Prosecutor’s Race

BULLETIN: New Twist in Prosecutor’s Race

The Civic Commons and The Citizens League of Greater Cleveland are collaborating on a unique online forum with the Democratic candidates for county prosecutor that if successful may significantly affect the way future races are conducted in our community.

Through the forum, in which all five candidates are participating, voters may pose questions directly to each candidate. The answers will be online for all to see. The forum, which started today, will continue through Thursday, January 26.

You can pose your questions anytime — some questions have been posted already, along with answers from candidates Tim McGinty, Robert Triozzi, and Stephanie Hall. But don’t expect any more answers until after tonight’s old-fashioned forum at the Laborers Hall, 3210 Euclid Ave. That event, sponsored by the North Shore AFL-CIO Federation of Labor, will go from 5-7PM and is open to the public.

More debates scheduled
The next debate will be tomorrow, Wednesday, January 25 at 7:00 PM at the Brecksville Community Center, One Community Drive, in Brecksville.  It will be moderated by Tom Beres of WKYC Channel 3, and sponsored by a collection of Democratic Clubs.

The candidates will debate again on February 4 from noon until 2:30
PM at the East Cleveland Public Library, 14101 Euclid Avenue, in an event sponsored by the East Cleveland Coalition.

The traditional City Club debate will be February 15 from noon until 1:30
PM   at The City Club, 850 Euclid Ave. Admission will be charged, though the program may be accessed via radio and television [on a delayed basis]. Go here for more information.

I’ve said it before, and I’ll say it again: it EATS THEM ALIVE that President Barack and First Lady Michelle Obama exude all the wholesome, family-friendly, family-devoted qualities that they blather on about all the time.  — Jack & Jill Politics  SOURCE
