Thursday night September 8, 2011, more than 100 people gathered at the Lafayette Club on Fletcher Street for a candidate forum conducted by the Citywide Neighborhood Council. Fifteen of the seventeen candidates participated (Rita Mercier was at a Cemetery Commission meeting and Fred Doyle at his own fund raiser). The program consisted of each candidate making a two minute opening statement on the topic of crime and public safety, then each candidate answered a single question that came from the audience. Finally, each candidate had one minute for concluding remarks. I recorded the two minute opening and the one minute closing for each candidate and have posted these as individual clips to YouTube. The audio may not be the greatest, but I believe all clips are loud enough to be heard and understood. Just click on the candidate name below to launch that candidate’s video.
