Vote, Vote, Vote.
I said it last month and I will say it again. In media, whether it be Print, TV, Radio, Internet, or whatever it is, you can always tell when election season is nearing. We get hit up with campaign ads, promises, which person voted for what numerous times throughout the day. All of these ads are in an effort for a particular candidate to get within the good graces of YOU, the voter. In our efforts here at the Q&A Times I wanted to take somewhat of a different approach, that often other media outlets will not do (or will do, but on a much lesser basis). Ads are an effective tool and you will find them within this publication, but what about the actual person running for these political seats or particular job? What about proposing a solution to a problem or issue? Often in media the candidate will only have 15 or 30 seconds to get their message across, or a maximum of 50 words to answer in print. This is why you get the common (I want to create jobs and lower taxes) answer. Doesn’t everyone say that? I, myself would be more interested in learning how they are actually going to achieve the things they propose or say. Wouldn’t you? It is my hope that within this issue we can award you one final opportunity to connect with the candidate of your choice, helping you the voter decide. The candidates are afforded to providing a clear answer and/or solution toward what their future efforts are if being re-elected, or would be if becoming elected (and they are not sugar coated). Some of the interviewed questions began last month and are concluded within this issue. For those that answered all five of their questions last month, they will discuss additional important voter topics this month. Please join us once again in the political section where we ask the questions, they provide the answers, and you the voter get your last opportunity to decide. When the time comes please get out there and vote, it is more important than ever! Also found within this issue are timely topics, new contributors and those Q&A columns you have grown fond of (or dislike for that matter). Lastly, I’d like to wish everyone a very Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks as always for reading, and a very special thanks to all of our contributors. Please let them know you recognized them within our pages!
