Mayoral Debate March 23
Judicial Debate March 24
Not the best times to have the public attend and be informed, but this is the big debate that Mayor McCue is all agog over! Hopefully he doesn’t get any tough, hard questions. But if he does they will be asked by the League of Woman Voters.
I wonder if Mayor McCue is going to be having a temper tantrum and asking if the people with questions have yard signs or have their minds made up. He only wants unbiased people who aren't supporting a candidate to ask questions.

Will he be taking a day of vacation to participate in this debate or will I be paying for him to lobby for his job for 3 more years?? I'm just saying, wouldn't you think that would also be a pertinent point to make?”
I don’t know what the rules are as far as debates and campaigning on public time, then again, Mayor McCue would just claim that he didn’t know and there are no signs telling him not to. Much like him getting signatures on the U.S. Post Office in
