Connor Shipp of the Moultonborough Academy Class of 2018 opened the session and he and his classmates are proof positive that our schools are doing a great job. Some of the students asked some very good questions of the candidates. In a few years they will be voters.
The forum started with Glenn Cordelli asking if candidates could respond to " negative attacks" and was told they could. What is that about? Public officials need a thick skin, Glenn. Criticizing your record is not a " negative attack." Nor is criticizing your extreme political affiliations. Get over it..
Moderator Lee Quimby did a good job allowing all candidates to speak their minds and in the end, the consensus seemed to be that it was long, but a very good session. I'll have much more to say in future posts.
