DFL governor hopefuls to answer questions - This Saturday afternoon at Alexandria Technical College

The following is a press release from the local DFL party:

The Democratic Farmer Labor Party (DFL) in the counties of central and west central Minnesota are sponsoring a DFL Gubernatorial Candidate Forum on Saturday, January 9 at 1 p.m. at the Alexandria Technical College Auditorium, South Auditorium, Room 743.


During the forum, the candidates will answer questions in order to introduce themselves, identify their positions on current issues, and present their leadership insights and abilities.

A time to meet and talk with individual candidates will follow.

This event is timely, say local DFL leaders, because it provides information for caucus-goers to use in the non-binding preference vote for the Democratic governor candidate at the statewide DFL caucuses, which will be held Tuesday, February 2.

There are 10 candidates vying for the DFL endorsement, including State Senator Tom Bakk, former U.S. Senator Mark Dayton, former House Minority Leader Matt Entenza, Ramsey County Attorney Susan Gaertner, Speaker of the House Margaret Anderson Kelliher, former State Senator Steve Kelley, State Senator John Marty, State Representative Tom Rukavina, Mayor of Minneapolis R.T. Rybak, and State Representative Paul Thissen.

2010 will be an important election, according to local DFL leaders.

This January 9 forum is open to all – an opportunity to get to know the candidates, learn more about the issues and participate in the process of choosing a candidate.

I am getting a little tired of your obvious liberal bias influencing the way you report the news on this blog

When a republican candidate for gov (Rep Marty Seifert) was in Hoffman for a candidates forum in Dec there was not one word on your blog about it before or after the visit and I did not see you at the meeting. However a DFL forum in Alex is mentioned and I suspect that you will be there video camera in hand to record it with a lot of praise for what they have to say.

Hey dude - this is my blog and I've never said my posts would be unbiased. Guess what - Marty never told me he was gonna be in Hoffman. Comb my e-mail if you wish, I only know what people tell me.

So Donnelly, if you want the unbiased stuff, look forward to the new Herman Hoffman Tribune website, which will be unveiled this month. Not only that, but it would be helpful if you could tell me what day in December that event took place - even if I missed it, it's good for me to know when stuff happened and where.
