Libertarian Brad Ploeger and Democrat Steve Oppenheimer qualify in that regard, Incumbent Republican Commissioner Chuck Eaton not so much. The assumption that nobody in the room is gonna vote for him is not justification for failing to show up, we are still his constituents and he serves us. Not the other way around.
That's why the room isn't a cavern but a rather intimate setting that guarantees the attendees will be able to see the whites of our candidates eyes as they respond to the questions posed by the moderator. If you'd like to attend feel free to do so but a hint of your intention to participate would be appreciated. Or not.
The question has arisen about live streaming video of the event as it transpires. The DeKalb LP will be shooting flipcam video during the course of the debate and that will show up post debate over at the Bludgeon & Skewer YouTube channel. If you'd like to use your smart phone to send stuff out live, by all means feel free but be mindful of not blocking anybody else's view.
This will be the only time that DeKalbians and Decaturites will have a chance to see and hear both of the candidates looking to take Commissioner Eatons job. Don't miss out, come on down and do some local, live politics.
