As I mentioned in an earlier post my opponent and I took part in a forum at the Santa Fe Community College. It was sponsored by the community access channel 16 and KSFR radio. KSFR has been running portions of the questions and answers on their news segments. Here you can listen to a question regarding the jail. My opponent wants to go back to having a private company run the jail although she alters her answer to that question based on where we are speaking. One of her campaign websites (she has two) clearly states she wants to privatize the jail.
The entire forum can be watched on Community Access Channel 16, (you must have comcast cable) The forum was taped for later showings and will be on air at 8 pm on May 26, and June 4. It will also air at 1pm on 23, and at 9 am on May 29, It will also air at 2 pm on June 1, 2006.
The Sheriff's race has also been featured on KOAT Channel 7 in a news segment called commitment 2006. I have received numerous calls in support of my answers to the questions in these segments. I hope to provide a link to these segments if KOAT puts them on their website. On Thursday May 25, 2006 there will be a forum for candidates put on by the Eldorado Residents Association at the community center in Eldorado. The forum will begin at 7:00 pm.
There are not a lot of forum's scheduled and my opponent was a no show at the Edgewood forum on Friday May 19, 2006. Early Voting has begun at several sites throughout Santa Fe, stop by and get your vote cast. There are seldom lines and you can be in and out quick.
