Ever been frustrated because it seemed like party insiders had already chosen their candidate before you ever get to weigh in? Would you like to meet and compare the candidates for New Mexico’s highest office in a casual, low-key forum?
If you are interested in finding out more about the people who are vying to lead New Mexico in 2010, the Rio Grande Foundation has an event for you.
The Foundation is hosting a forum for each of the candidates* for New Mexico governor on December 9, 2009 from 6:00PM to 8:00PM in the auditorium at the Albuquerque Museum. The Museum is located at 2000 Mountain Road NW near Old Town. Admission is $5 payable at the door. Let us know you are coming by sending an E-mail to: firstname.lastname@example.org. Light beverages will be provided.
Be ready to ask a question of the candidates. This is not a formal debate, rather it is an informal way for concerns to “kick the tires” and find out more about the candidates, their stances on the issues, and how they interact with the crowd. The discussion will be moderated by Rio Grande Foundation president Paul Gessing.
*All candidates of both parties have been invited and some have pledged to attend, but we have no way to guarantee that specific candidates show up.
