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.

Kudos to the City-wide Neighborhood Council for having a successful opening to their series of candidates forums.
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?
I’ll say what most of you are thinking: E-I-E-I- .. OMG!
Thank you Dick for posting this forum for the folks that could not make it.
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.
