The intention of this project is to give the voters of Mamakating the opportunity to hear the local candidates discuss the issues involving the Town Of Mamakating in depth, and outside of the "Sound Byte, Simple slogan" world of palm cards and store front glad handing. These interviews were conducted before the primary elections of 2013 for the Town Of Mamakating. All candidates in this election cycle were offered the opportunity to be involved in this project, the interviews that are posted in this playlist are of the candidates who chose to participate. We thank the participants and hope you find this informative and useful.
Welcome to Mamakating News's first on line, interactive election forum. This forum has been designed to be informative to the voter and to provide the candidates with a platform to get thier message to the public. Phase 1 is a series of interviews designed to let the voter get to know the candidates better. The interviews were conducted in the same manner for all the candidates and all candidates were asked the same questions. Phase 2 is designed to permit the public to ask the candidates questions and provide video responses from the candidates. You can watch the interviews all at once or one at a time on the Mamakating News Channel @ Youtube, and your questions can be asked at either our Youtube page or our Facebook page @ Teddy Brebbia MamakatingNews. We ask that all questions be posed in a manner that all candidates can anwser and that a sense of decorum is maintained. (Any inapproprate comments or questions will be deleted at the descresion of Mamakating News.) We hope you find this forum helpful and informative and we are open to suggestions as to how to make it better serve the public. Thank you for participating and enjoy.
