Before We Vote – We would like to hear from You (the Candidate)!

Have you ever questioned any candidate (state, federal or local) on the issues that are of concern to you the voter? Do they reply to your email? Do they reply to your voice mails? Do they respond to you when you participate in “online” chat sessions?

Have noted that when the lead line in an email from the candidate appears to be an attempt by the candidate to engage in a conversation with you the voter, the dialog abruptly ends and goes no further than a donate button on the bottom line (a link to PayPal is often the end result)?
Have you ever wondered and ask yourself “are they after my vote or just my donation(s)”?

The candidates are very busy trying to get elected and often seem to be somewhat nonresponsive. They also seem to be unsure about many issues and tackling these questions by having their campaign managers reply on their behalf and that also seems as if they would rather not reply either.

The Mesquite Weekly would like to assist the voters and the candidates to work together. We will therefore take your questions and comments on your behalf and compile the questions and comments and forward them to the candidates for their responses and comments before November 1, 2018. We will then publish the answers by topic as well as the responses by the candidates.
The candidates are:

City of Mesquite

Sandra Ramaker – Mesquite City Council Seat 1
Geno Withelder – Mesquite City Council Seat 1
Dave Ballweg – Mesquite City Council Seat 3
George Gault – Mesquite City Council Seat 3

Karen Fielding – Mesquite City Council Seat 4

State of Nevada

Steve Sisolak – Governor

Chris Edwards – Assembly District 19 and Joe Hardy – State Senate District 12 are the incumbents and they both do not have any serious challengers, however they were responsive in the past and we believe that they will continue to be responsive to your questions.

Dean Heller – U.S. Senate
Jackie Rosen – U.S. Senate
Cresent Hardy – Congressional District 4
Steven Horsford – Congressional District 4

To get started, please

It’s simple: In the comment section below just put the candidate’s name and your question(s) or comment(s) directed at the candidate. Include your name and email address. We also ask that you respect persons (unless your quoting Romans 2:11 KJV) and keep the colorful words in perspective (think of the use of salt and pepper as flavor enhancers not as singular consumables). Censorship is not a virtue of this publication, but the continuity of the Mesquite Weekly is never the less a stated goal.
