10 Must Ask Rules ByGail Riecken

first_img10 MUST ASK RULESBY CITY-COUNTY OBSERVER STATEHOUSE EDITOR GAIL RIECKENI hope you get a kick out of reading Abdul Hakim-Shabazz as I do. His brand of political humor runs through his articles much like the banter talk he would lay on a legislator that happened to get caught with him in the elevator. I don’t think he knew who I was but everyone knew him. In his recent article, Abdul offers his 10 Primary Rules including his most “ Don’t talk to me about this” rules. ( https://city-countyobserver.com/commentary-ten-primary-rules/)He is spot on. But, I still would like to hear candidates’ opinions about the issues that lie beneath the references to President Trump he doesn’t want to hear about and those that affect us every day and aren’t talked about, until some crisis or event takes place or a bill is authored.   I think others would like to hear, too.For example – What leadership qualities in a candidate are important to youWill you sign an ethics statement and participate in the prevention of sexual harassment trainingWhat comment would you have regarding the importance of the separation of powers in government – executive, legislative, judicialWhat is your position on 1st Amendment Rights – please comment on media, including socialWhat is your position on 2nd Amendment RightsWhat is your position on the 14th Amendment RightsWhat is your position on Equal Pay for WomenHow would you better control government spending What is your position on increasing the minimum wage, andLast, but very important, How would you improve services to our children, including our education systemThose are my 10 Must Ask Rules. I just learned there is the first open meeting for candidates running for Senator Jim Tomes seat. It begins at 9:00 this Saturday at CK Newsome. Call CK Newsome, 812-435-6141, to confirm. Maybe I will see you there.FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img
