Monday's Online Lt. Guv Debate

Posted By on Fri, Aug 25, 2006 at 3:39 PM

The online debate between John Tracy and Matt Dunne is happening at noon on Monday. Some details, via Green Mountain Daily:

There will be only 9 questions. Approximately 5 will be issue-based... Another couple questions will be onleadership-slash-character topics. There will be a "philosophy ofgovernance" question, and also a question that will invite eachcandidate to contrast themselves with the other. For this contrastquestion, each candidate will be given a 30 second rebuttal. In thecase of the other questions, a 30 second rebuttal will only betriggered if a candidate characterizes their opponent in the course oftheir normally allotted 90 second answer. Candidates will be given abrief opportunity for opening and closing remarks.

These time limits are not hard and fast - that is, there wont be abuzzer if they're a little off. There will also be a parallel "liveblogging thread" on GMD proper for folks who want to make comments.

Jack McCullough and Vermonter will be onsite with each of thecandidates to verify they (or their appointed typist, if they don'ttype very quickly) are indeed answering the questions themselves andaren't doing any cutting-and-pasting from crib sheets.

Interesting. To find out how you can access this debate, follow the link above.
