On Saturday afternoon October 28, 2006
the North Valley Neighborhood Association sponsored a “Candidates
Forum” at the Dona Ana Volunteer Fire Station in Dona Ana.
The purpose of this community event was to give six
candidates running for representative offices the opportunity
to meet with the public and respond to questions posed by the audience.
These questions dealt exclusively with matters of local concern.
This “Forum” was a success beyond our best hopes! Nearly
sixty (60) people came to this public meeting on a gorgeous fall
afternoon. The Candidates were uniformly appreciative of the opportunity
to meet with concerned citizens. One of the candidates said: “This
is the largest (gathering) he had appeared before (during this campaign)”.
We need to add that virtually no one left the meeting before it
was concluded—a little more than 2 hours after it began. Refreshments
were provided by local businesses, and the “leftovers”
were donated to the Dona Ana Volunteer Fire Station in appreciation
for use of their facilities.
