Republican gubernatorial candidates Mark Neumann and Scott Walker will participate in a ground-breaking 60-minute, commercial-free, town hall meeting originating from Eckstein Hall, the new Marquette University Law School building. It will be broadcast statewide on Wednesday, Aug. 25, from 7 to 8 p.m.
Contrary to what seems like common wisdom among front-running politicians, debates are good.
Here are some suggestions:
1. Please don’t get into a pissing contest to prove which one is the most conservative/outsider/supported/etc. Not interested.
2. Tell me what you hope to accomplish. Make it as specific as you can.
3. Be ready to defend what you did while holding public office. Don’t give me spin.
4. Don’t make stuff up. We will eventually find out and you will be embarrassed by it later.
There’s probably more, but that will do for now.
