Minnesota Gubernatorial Candidate Debate Saturday, Jan 30, 2010
Our Gubernatorial Debate has outgrown the Princeton Library and has to move to The Great Northern Train Depot in Princeton! (see address below) Please pass this information onto anyone who may need this updated location information and anyone who wants to start getting involved in our cause. We now have 4 candidates that will be at this historic event - Marty Seifert, Phil Herwig, Bill Haas, and Tom Emmer.
This Tea Party is one of the most active and effective truly grassroots 0rganization in the state! You are making a statement that we will not sit down or shut up - We want our cities, counties, States and Country to be the best in the world! We live in the greatest country in the history of this world for a reason. The reason is this great country was founded on FREEDOM!
Due to the expected overflow turnout for our upcoming Governors debate on Saturday January 30th @ 2:00pm we have had to move to the Mille Lacs Historical Society Great Room to host the event. In general the debate will go as follows;
Each candidate will have 3 minutes to introduce themselves and telling why there are running and what they stand for.
Each candidate will then have 2 minutes to speak on the other candidates statements. We are asking people with questions to write them down (we will provide postcards, etc.) and then the questions will be randomly drawn for asking.
The questioner can ask their question to any or all of the candidates and the candidates will have time to answer. The questioner will have 1 followup question on point if needed. (Bring questions and remember to be respectful to our guests.
Try to keep your questions related to our State and local issues - Property rights, Light Rail (BOONDOGGLE), taxes of all kinds, Energy and keeping their campaign promises.)
Candidates will get 3 to 5 minutes at the end to summarize and try to prove to us that they have the clearest vision and will stick to their promises. We are planning on getting as many microphones as we can.
There will always be disagreements - that is a good thing. We have to hear what they have to say. If we beat up on our we won't be able to get more guests in the future. Also please keep side conversations to a minimum while others are speaking.
The depot houses the Mille Lacs County Historical Society, 101 S 10th St., is located west of downtown Princeton on 1st Street. From the center stoplight in Princeton at the junction of Rum River Drive (Old Hwy 169) go west on 1st street approximately 5 blocks, turn left just past the Public Utilities office. The depot will be on your right. Travel to the far (southern) end of the building. Doors open at 2:00pm. Depending on the weather you may want to bring a small blanket and or pad for your chair.
