    Gary has a nicer smile.  Not that I'm funny that way, just saying...
    He makes a prettier picture in a suit...  Know what I mean?  Lot's of teeth.

    Reread them.  Officicial debate questions would have some subtle but important diffences. Some of yours have what could be seen as opinion statements in the question or just before them.  

    Here is just one example:

    1.      Fallon is a junior council member with no personal history of politics (outside of family members holding office) that I can find. How can her experiences in the private sector directly benefit the city and translate to an effective mayor-ship?

    Rewritten soley as a question:

    How can Fallon as a junior council member with little or no documented personal history of politics experience but only in the private sector directly benefit the city and translate that an effective mayor-ship?

    The second one is still not great or without leading content either but that is what I am getting at.

    scootcha: OK. I think I see your point...but at the same time, you and I asked the same exact thing. I'm a voter. Right now, I have opinions about both. The questions are still honest and have yet to be answered. The argument you posit would be more valid IF I were actually a debate moderator and this was actually a debate between the candidates, but I'm not. I'm a voter asking questions based on what I have seen, found, and heard. This isn't a professional forum and it doesn't negate the actual validity of the questions.

    Re: Show Me Your Platform

    I sent emails to probably half the city council this afternoon, including Gary and Deb, on various issues.

    I'm getting extremely positive feedback from Gary.  He actually responded to my multiple emails requesting information on pending regulations on parking stickers, water abatement, etc.

    I've gotten NADA from Deb, so far.  Not surprised.

    Bucci responded the fastest and actually wants to talk to me next week.  She's very friendly, but I only need data, so I just asked for an email response.

    Gary always responds but Deb needs to step it up have someone respond up if she wants to win!

    Even got a phone call from Kinnon yesterday.  He left a message.  Still nothing from Deb.

    Are my expectations just too high? 

    I don't understand the non-engagement from someone, who is supposed to be running for mayor.

    Gutclencher&goindownswingin-----She will be in a angry mood tonight because who was selected by the mayor for the Fire Station

    Committee----It seems aweful that only two councilors and not one

    citizens were put on this committee---Look at both Councilors they

    are The Mayor Butt Kissers and it won't change---Why not the Two

    Mayor Candidates because it will not be decided till after the election maybe two citizens also. Someone should ask Why NOt?

    Not one word about Grants and Federal Funding mention either what a joke this Committee is.

    activemaldonian: Why yes. I did. About 2 hours ago. How did you know?

    And FTR: Nada from Deb. But I am NOT (and I want to make this perfectly clear for goin'downswingin) surprised, shocked or otherwise nonplussed (look it up - it actually means confused) about the non-response from Fallon OR the fact that I did eventually get a lengthy response from Christenson.

    He answered some questions, not all - it was mostly the canned political platform rhetoric - but it was most definitely an answer I can live with.

    We're winding into the Summer months and the election is coming up fast, this Fall.
    I hope you're starting to see why I'm solidly leaning towards voting for Gary.  I can't consider a candidate, who doesn't seem to exist in any meaningful capacity physically, emailly, web sitey, Facebooky, telephony, bloggy, coffee muggery, bumper stickery, etc. etc. etc.

    Re: Show Me Your Platform

    I have been very open about being a big Gary Christenson supporter and I will be working hard to get him elected.  When I see something on here that I think should be answered, I call and ask him or one of his team members.  I was told he answered very similar questions recently so I figured it was you.

    People may not always like the answers they receive from any candidate, but the key is to ANSWER them.  It is totally unacceptable to ignore the "people" you are supposed to be advocating for.

    activemaldonian: That's pretty awesome of you. :)

    And I wholeheartedly agree. I would rather have an answer, even if it's not what I want to hear, than have nothing at all.

    Gutclencher: Amen.

    To ALL---My Platform ---Open Public meetings for all citizens to
    particpate in ---Have at least one meeting everyweek in a different
    ward per month this will let the citizen have a say.
    Open all the Financial records of the city for Public Review;
    Find funds to increase the Police and Fire fighters staffs through the
    use of Federal Funds and Federal Grants;
    Find Funds for summer program for students that other cities seem to find except Malden;
    Find Federal Funds to repair our streets and sidewalks that are in terrible  condition as of today;
    Find Federal Funding for a community policing program;
    How is that for a Platform----I want to debate Councilor Anderson
    (Ward 7) in the Ferryway school to hear what he wants to do;
    I am putting the challenge out to him.

    Re: Show Me Your Platform

    Does anyone know if Fallon is going to the community public forum this Sunday from 2-4 at the old Emerson School in Malden?

    This is an open forum free to the public sponsored by the Chinese Culture Connection, Wah Lum Academy, Asian Spectrum, and the key club from Malden High School.

    It is a place to hear the candidates platforms and ask questions.
    I heard she hadn't responded as of yesterday.
    Christenson and the candidates running for Councillors will be there....What do you think that means?

    Hellgirl:  The battle for ward 6 is ON.  It's already started.  Last nights cheesy theatrics are campaign shenanigans.  The entire city is involved in this now, even the at-large councilors.  Residents, like Andrew, actually believe that the show last night was real.  If this keeps up, Kinnon will have a whole lot of people supporting him.
    There is no knowing how long this lightning is going to be in the bottle.
    Send me a message via the link below, if and when you decide to get in on this campaign season.  It isn't going to be easy....

    He's a good political tactician.  He cares.  He "feels" something brewing.  We just need someone to run.  These blogs are pressuring him.  You're helping by giving voice to the very debate about someone else running.
    Self-fulfilling prophecy and all that stuff...

    Pressure, real or imagined, is pressure.

    something just doesn't seem right here...fallon MUST know, through word of mouth, that people are not pleased with her lack of communication about her campaign..and yet she continues to not address it?  doesn't add up, something fishy here....
