From now until the June Primary I am going to be posing questions to the candidates for the 35th State Assembly District. Sometimes they will be policy questions and sometimes they will be focused on other subjects.
I will post them Friday night and give the candidates until Monday night to email me a response that I can post. If a candidate doesn't respond they will concede this blog to the other candidates.
The questions won't involve them creating well-researched issue papers but instead will help us understand the different ideologies and backgrounds of the candidates. Some of them will help us understand them personally. I'd expect most of them wouldn't be more than a paragraph or two.
Candidates, here is your first question:
Can you share with us a few of your most influential teachers and why they created a lasting impression on you? Feel free to share a few from elementary through your college years. Include what grade/subject they taught and where they taught at.
Please email your replies to me and I will post them next Monday.
Note to Mike Stoker:
The other candidates have sent me built in widgets to post whenever I write a blog entry covering this campaign. Send me a widget if you want me to post yours.
Leave your suggestions for Week #2 questions in the comments section. You don't need to register to comment but please keep it classy. Questions must be addressed to all candidates.
