For those who missed this morning's televised Donna McAleer/Rob Bishop debate, we'll reel out a list of this week's 2012 General Election debates, meet the candidates events and other public political gatherings, for those WCF political wonks who'd still like to take a good look at these and the various other candidates prior to the November 6, 2012 election.
1) From yesterday's Standard-Examiner:
WASHINGTON TERRACE — The Weber County League of Women Voters is sponsoring a debate between Rep. Rob Bishop and Donna McAleer at 7 p.m. Monday at Pleasant Valley Library, 5568 Adams Ave., Washington Terrace.2) From the Donna McAleer for Congress Facebook site concerning a Tuesday night event:
Bishop, a Republican from Brigham City, is running for his sixth term in the U.S. House of Representatives representing District 1, which includes most of the Top of Utah.
McAleer, a Democrat from Park City, is a West Point graduate hoping to unseat him.
Leah Murray, associate professor of political science at Weber State, will be the moderator.
For more information, call 801-540-1282.
Come meet the people running to represent YOU in YOUR governement. Ask questions. Find out where they stand on issues that matter to YOU. Come get direct asnwers from Donna McAleer instead of the run-around from her opponent Rob Bishop.3) Via this morning's Standard-Examiner:
The Weber Council PTA will be hosting all Federal and State candidates from both parties. Donna will be there. Hopefully, Rob Bishop will be there. The event is located in the cafeteria of Orion Jr HS in Harrisville.
The night will begin with an open house at 6pm. Following a little mingling, each candidate will be given 2 minutes to make a statement. After opening statements, each candidate will be asked a series of prepared questions and given 1 minute to respond.
Then the best part: the floor opens up to questions from the audience again with candidates given 1 minute reponses.
The night closes with 2 minute closing remarks from each candidate.
Please get all your friends to RSVP to this important event. Your voice matters.
BRIGHAM CITY — The public is invited to a non-partisan candidates meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday at the Brigham City Community Center.As an added bonus, check out Donna McAleer's most excellent "Upcoming Events" page on Facebook, which overlaps with the events set forth above, and also focuses on other pre-election events which are still coming up:
This free event is sponsored by three local civic organizations to provide an opportunity for voters to hear and meet candidates in person before the Nov. 6 election.
Candidates for Utah governor and attorney general, the Legislature, U.S. House of Representatives and Senate, Box Elder County Commission, State Board of Education and Box Elder Board of Education have been invited to attend. Most have indicated that they will participate.
The format will allow each candidate a two-minute presentation on their qualifications and platform, after which written questions from the audience will be asked by the moderator. There will be time for voters to visit with candidates over refreshments following the formal portion of the meeting.
Sponsors of the meeting are the American Association of University Women, Civic Improvement Club and Ladies Community Club.
