Why Can't We Talk?
The Dayton Coalition's planned "Meet the Candidates" night on Octover 20 has been canceled due to a lack of interest.
Interest from whom, do you ask? Not the public. The candidates.
Neither the Democrats nor the Republicans accepted the Dayton group's invitation to attend the event. This was to be an informal gathering, where residents could ask questions and get to know the candidates as people and also learn more about their platforms and opinions on local issues.
Debra Johnson and Jean Dvorak accepted at the first invitation. Why do the other candidates not want to engage in conversation on topics relevant to the election?
There has been no open debate.
One side is ready, willing and able.
Perhaps those same Independent thinkers are the ones most ready, willing and able to run the Township too?
It's worth thinking about.
