Ward 1 Forum

May 6, 2010

The Ward 1 Forum held at the Beachmont VFW last week drew a decent crowd but not many minds were changed.

According to those who attended, most have already made up their minds in this race which ends with the special election May 11.


    We were at the forum on Tuesday and thought it was very well done . Carol Tye did a superb job as moderator and kept things flowing smoothly . Here is my report card for each candidate's performance :
    Mr. Abrams – Seemed a bit nervous , but had some great ideas and presented himself very well !
    Mr. Carter – Invest in a suit and tie and whats with your vendetta against the police dept. ?
    Mr. Penta – You know Exactly what your getting , If you liked the past , he is your candidate .
    Mr. Orne – Probably the most eloquant speaker of the evening , but maybe a bit too late of a campaign ?
    We will be at Liston Towers Tuesday morning casting TWO votes for MR . ABRAMS

  • Vendetta against the police? Did you watrch the same WARD 1 Forum that I went to? I start the thing by asking the other candidates to pledge to invest the entire expense account that comes with the office into police details. Putting a beat cop in Donnelly sq was more or less the headline of my campaign. You may be right about the suit but I strive to be genuine and I hate ties.
