Boulder's first online candidate debate

  • 1 Comments
  • by: DavidThi808

Here’s your chance to see Boulder history in the making. On Monday October 15 at 7:00pm Boulder will have it’s first live online debate. The City Council candidates will be debating live and simultaneously via the web right here at Liberal and Loving It.

Because of the large number of candidates, having an in-person debate is essentially unworkable. Giving each candidate a 3 minute introduction takes over an hour. Add 3 – 4 questions and you are looking at a 5-1/2 hour marathon where even the candidates fall asleep between their 3 minutes once an hour.

The structure of this debate is designed to allow all to “talk” at the same time while keeping with the debate framework where they are given the question and must answer immediately and in a limited time frame. Here’s how it will work:

  1. A question (contribute your questions…) is posted to my blog.
  2. Each candidate must respond within 5 minutes, answering on their own, and in under 300 words.
  3. Answers are emailed to us and we then add all to the question at the same time.
  4. The next question is posted.

In under an hour we will present the candidates with 11 questions and get answers. By 8:00 we will be done. And this will occur the day you will probably receive your ballot. So you can watch, evaluate, and then vote.

A giant thank you to the candidates for trying this. None of them know if it will be useful so kudos to them for putting in the time to try something new.

Note: 19 candidates have agreed to participate. Adam Massey has declined – Phil Hernandez and Susan Peterson have not responded (yet).

Are you going to watch?

One thought on “Boulder’s first online candidate debate

  1. I’m pretty sure I know who’ll I’ll be voting for when the time comes, but this is a good way to let everyone make their views known.  And I’m glad to see so many candidates are participating.
