Grilled politicians are nice
When afforded the opportunity to hear the candidates for mayor and school board present their platforms, I had a feeling the citizens would turn out with ears open.
I wasn’t disappointed — with the number of people present or the questions they used to grill the candidates.
Personally, I’m always a fan of putting candidates, their platforms in particular, under a microscope. In my logic, there’s no reason to put someone in office and then wonder what their intentions are, only to be disappointed if their opinions differ from yours on key issues.
