TONIGHT: Watch ABQ City Council District 6 Candidate Forum
Just wanted to remind you that a District 6 candidate forum will be presented by 'We The People' tonight, Thursday, September 27, 2007, and broadcast live on Albuquerque Cable Channel 27 from 6:00 to 7:00 PM. It will also be live streamed online. The forum will be moderated by the League of Women Voters and will feature candidates Rey Garduño, Blair Kaufman, Kevin Wilson, and Joanie Griffin. Given the heated race going on in District 6, this is must-see TV for those interested in the future of our city.
Also note that video clips are now available from the recent Albuquerque United Candidates Forum sponsored by 1000 Friends of New Mexico, Southwest Organizing Project, Sage Council and the League of Young Voters.
Sorry to do an off-subject post, but I saw a news link on fark.com that I think would be of interest to everyone. Basically, something came out saying that Saddam was willing to go into exile voluntarily if he was allowed to keep 1 billion. In other words, the war was even less necessary than opponents initially thought... especially with how many billions we already spent. Here's the link:

Both of these forums were excellent. It's very difficult to handle a live broadcast even for professionals. The We The People show is produced by ordinary people yet they managed to pull it off. League of Women Voters did great too. What a service to the community. We can no longer depend on local mainstream media to cover local elections or much else of use to the community.
