City Council Candidate Night – Crime & Public Safety

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.

    Thanks, Dick, for the generous effort to record and publicize these!!! I couldn’t make it, and I very much appreciate being able to catch a little bit of each of the candidates’ talks. This is Youtube at its best.

    Thanks for posting these videos. Is there a way that you can keep them in a spot for easy retrieval (as you probably add others) and time goes on?

    Thanks for posting these videos! I hope you continue to provide multi-media coverage of the 2011 CC race. It’s a great benefit to the voting public.
