Denver Direct: Report from the District 8 write-in frenzy
Wednesday, April 27, 2011
I know you’ve been waiting anxiously to see the District 8 write-in frenzy forums, so I went last night to the Scott United Methodist Church at 2880 Garfield St. The forum was sponsored by North City Park Civic Association. Unfortunately, the venue was poorly lighted and the sound system (home stereo) untested.
Here’s the first round in which each of 25 candidates got to speak for 30 seconds. You may think that is hardly enough time to judge a candidate, but research shows that you make up your mind in the first 1/2 second, so it should be plenty of time. Council District 8 is often touted as being one of the most diverse, and here we have the proof – at least one candidate from every category – and, I must say, some who seemed very capable.
Here’s the official list to date:
Council District 8
Karen E. Brown-Gerdine
Loralie R. Cole
Rene I. Farkass
Julie C. Farrar
Paul Noel Fiorino
Nita (Dwinita) Henry
Thomas Henry Juniel
Angela Elaine Lombard
Mark G. Martinez
Owetta R. McNeil
Steven Lewis Olstad
Thomas G. Perricci
Timothy P. Pickard
Darrell B. Watson
Rockford G. Williams
