Let's see what they ALL have to say instead of posting pictures of themselves at bars, rallies, & fundraisers. Don't any of these people WORK? I'm interested in what their views are on things like the "Fly Frontera" issue. How would those candidates who DON'T pay property/school taxes know what it feels like if they don't have to pay what the rest of us have to?! How will they "create" all these jobs they say they will? With what $$? TAXPAYERS $$$!!! Enough with the "for the people" nonsense!

According to the Herald

"The public is invited to attend and to submit questions for the candidates via email at civicengagement@utb.edu"

But I will tell you I have been to these events - they will filter out all difficult questions. A true public forum would be to allow attendees to put their name in a hat and then have someone pul their name from the hat and ask the question.

This is a filtered event - but nonetheless something might be learned

They should have the people just ask them ON THE SPOT questions and see what their responses would be. Now THAT would be hilarious!
