Waterloo Town Council Debate Prep

Posted by on 30 Oct 2007 | Tagged as: Town Council

Thursday night I will participate in my first political debate.

I’m a bit nervous, as I am often not a real fast thinker, and like to ponder and research the best answer before I give an answer. I am concerned I’ll get asked a question I know nothing about, like, ‘What are your thoughts on the proposed bla bla ordinance?’
‘ahh…what’s the bla bla ordinance?’

It will be a learning experience for me, and I am looking forward to it.
I am looking forward to rubbing shoulders with those people I’m running in the race with, including Bill Hubartt, Randy Bice and Matt Smith.
I have played Softball with Matt previously, and go to church with him as well. He’s a great guy. All those guys are great. I can’t speak for the other dude, though…I don’t know who he is, and don’t know his name, either–but I can assume he’s a great guy!

It should be a nice friendly debate.

Unfortunately, my wife has a business trip on Thursday and won’t be in attendance to support me. But I know I’ll be in her thoughts, as I normally am.

In my prep for the debate, I’m trying to figure out what kinds of questions will be asked. If you were submitting questions to potential council members in your city or town, what would you ask them?

    I’m not into politics at all-but I would ask about how you’d spend the town’s money, what you’re for and against there, and also property taxes seems to be the talk of the town. I would definately hit on that one, if your position encompasses that. Remember Miss South Carolina. She’s written the book about being nervous and caught off guard. She later had a very good answer for the question, though, when she was a guest on the Today show or something like that.

    Good Luck!!!

    I am more than willing to stand in the back with a sign that reads “GO NATHAN!” Oh, or we could put Ayron in a sandwhich board (although with his size shouldn’t we call it a sub board?) and make him walk the streets asking voters to vote for you.
