Aud man out

Posted By on Fri, Oct 13, 2006 at 11:32 AM

I didn't come up with that zinger of a title. Vermont Hum did. Here's Hum's recap of the Auditor of Accounts debate on VPR. Sorry I missed this one. Glad someone is paying attention.

Lib Union offering Jerry Levy... made an interesting debate even more interesting. Levy stammeredsomething about not being the best technical person for the job butwould give 100 per cent. He's also directed playswhich makes him uniquely qualified for the position. Levy wasn't at thedebate — his segment was taped. Here's the wrap on the major candidates:

  • Republican incumbent Randy Brockwas solid, having an answer for most everything. He's proud of keepingpolitics out of the office, and doubly proud of completing state auditsin a timely manner, something that hadn't been commonplace in the past.When Martha Abbott tried to corner him about living in Floridapart-time, Brock was steadfast, saying he's taken some long weekends tothe Sunshine State but does not live there. He stated he has a car withlots of miles, all of those miles logged in Vermont.
  • Dem candidate Tom Salmon needs more debate experience; at times he had a lightweight timbre not unlike Dan Quayle.He was strong when he pointed out he's the only one in the race with acollege accounting degree and is a CPA. Brock is not. When Brockpointed out that Salmon had not held a job since 1993, Salmon defiantlystated that was false; he worked for a firm from 2002 -2003.
  • Martha Abbott soundedconfident and answered questions thoroughly. She admittedunapologetically that she is carrying a political agenda though thecampaign.
