Award winning writer Thomas Wheatley of Atlanta's Creative Loafing alternative weekly and it's Fresh Loaf Blog has tentatively agreed to serve as moderator for the debate being sponsored by the Libertarian Party of DeKalb County for candidates running in the special election for State Senate District 42. The current list of invitees to this debate are Jason Carter (D), Tom Stubbs (D) and Libertarian David Montané and any other candidates who decide to file and run by the time this race is officially underway.
The debate will be held in the backroom of the Famous Pub over in the Toco Hills Shopping Plaza and it is hoped that a good time will be had by all. Be advised that seating is limited for this event, so be sure to show up early once we can get the date nailed down.
There are still some format issues being discussed by the guys and girls of the DeKalb LP affiliate, should we go with the Big Wheel-O-Questions? The more conservative 3x5 card questions submitted by audience members or just set up a giant wire cage and let the candidates battle it out?
We'll ponder this as we still haven't got Bundlin' Dave Adelman approved by the Congress yet. What are those duffers on the hill waiting for? It's not like they have anything better to do. The Singaporeans desperately need their new Ambassador and we want to set a firm date for the debate,
