Questions and Answers on Fall River Blog

Eleven days ago I reached out to both candidates and submitted to them, via email, three questions that I hoped they would be willing to answer. I asked for them to please submit their answers by October 26th.

The 26th came and not hearing back from either candidate I then reached out to people that I knew were supporting them. After reaching out to the candidates supporters I got word back that Cathy would submit responses to the questions but obviously not in my original timeline. I heard nothing from Will's camp.

I wish both candidates had been willing to participate, particularly since this was inspired partly by a commentor who questioned if I had reached out to Attorney Flanagan.

Since Councilor Viveiros has taken the time to respond I will post all 3 questions and her responses on Fall River Blog. At this point because I have not heard from Attorney Flanagan or his campaign, I will not accept and will not publish his responses. I believe to do so AFTER his opponents answers have been published would be unfair and unethical.

Just like Flanagan to dodge issues...

Why am I not surprised to learn that Flanagan, once again, avoided meaningful questions?

We know Will Flanagan reads the blogs because he rips stuff off of them. So why wouldn't he respond here. This is a rhetorical question because I know the answer: Will doesn't have any answers to these questions. And I don't think Lefty would let him slip by with "change," "move forward," and "fall river is a great great city."

While I am on the subject Mr. Lame, Will is going around saying that you can't have change by moving a person (cathy ann) from one seat to another. At the same time Will is riding the "hope" "change" coat tails of Obama.

Did't the United States take someone who was in the seat of Senator and move him to the seat of President and BOOM! Change!

Just because you don't like the answers that doesn'y mean once again avoiding answering.

I bought a used cars this week and the saleswoman took a couple of hours explaing all the features,
I had to take the car back under the lemon laws today.

Buyer Beware

I am convinced this is just a website for Cathy Ann, run by Cathy Ann. Either way, you need a hobby. Reminds me of the Bob C one, and the others. Get a life.

Anon 5:19 - It isn't that I didn't like the answers from Will here, Will didn't answer at all. Will doesn't ever answer the questions anywhere. I DARE you to listen to him and find an instance where he goes 1 minute without saying hope, change, move fall river, or great city. He is empty and clearly attracts the likeminded.

This blog has been around since Lambert was in office and when there was no indication of Lambert ever leaving office. To say that this blog is a campaign device is just plain ignorant but gives some insight to your voting proclivities.

Will didn't seem to have a problem with the blogs when he was stealing ideas from them.

Hard to see how people are excited about either of these 2. One thing is for sure, whoever it is, they are going to need lots of help. Hope you all can pull together and try to help the next mayor whomever it is but this year's field of candidates was incredibly weak and we were left with 2 poor choices for mayor. Let's not celebrate it let's just hope they do a good job and try to help them do it.

WSAR IS SWAMPED WITH POLITICAL ADS..THE HURRICANES SHOW IS FULL OF THEM..THEY ARE CLEARLY CRUSHING THE HERALD NEWS IN THE AD WARS..I GUESS THE CANDIDATES FEEWL MORE VOTERS ARE LISTENING TO WSAR THAN READING THE HERALD NEWS..INTERESTING

How much do those ads in the herald cost? There seems to be quite a few of them.

If I were elected Mayor, the first thing I would do is use stimulus money to buy Mike Herren, I mean "Anonymous", a new computer keyboard. One with a CAPS LOCK key that doesn't stick. Because I'm getting real tired of seeing his belligerent yelling on here....

Your Grandmother's Radio Station said...

Wow, the day before a huge election and there are political ads on the only local radio station?! That is some wild stuff.

I was listening to WSAR this morning and realized that its major draw is to give the senior callers someone to talk to during the day.

WJ that would win any candidate the election hands down!

hurricanes show is the best thing to happen around here in yrs...keep on rocking hurricane

Somehow I think Lisa Stratten sleeps well at night, whatever "ad wars" might be happening in some active imaginations around Fall River..

For the record..the stickers on front of the Herald News run about a $1,000 a pop...ads on WSAR probably around 6-12 dollars a throw..

Oh, BTW..

ALL CAPS is considered shouting on the internet, and is bad form in any language.."The Hurricane" would do well to stop shouting on the air as well, since it distorts the audio on WSAR to a degree that makes his show virtually unlistenable, regardless of whatever the topic might be..
