Mayoral Debate Tonight! (Video Link)
Word is that the Mayor's race begins tonight with a candidate forum sponsored by the Fayetteville Council of Neighborhoods. It opens at 7:00 p.m. in the Parish Hall of St. Paul's Episcopal Church. No advance word on the format or whether the audience members can ask their planted questions. We are told that all six of the announced candidates will participate, so it should be informative, regardless of how it is staged.
There is no live coverage on either the former Government Channel 16 or Community Access Television Channel 18 tonight. Don't make us wait for tomorow's news accounts in the local papers. If anyone attends, please use the comments here to let us know how it went, what happened, who goofed, who did well, who had good ideas, who had none, and who should drop out now.
UPDATE: The debate is now available online, so draw your own conclusions.
