An ArmchairMayor editorial by Mel Rothenburger.
THE BEST THING about election forums is that voters get to see and hear how well candidates think on their feet. At last night’s media-sponsored forum, the thinking came in a range of speeds.
Liberal incumbent Todd Stone’s experience shone through as he maintained his composure throughout, even when jeered, reeling off lists of Liberal accomplishments. His preparedness was refreshing compared to some of the other stuff that was offered up.
But the Best Team award goes hands down to the Green Party pair of Donovan Cavers and Dan Hines.
