Yes Erin, city elections are non-partisan. But we all know the political philosophy we end up with. If these leaders were really non-partisan they would treat both major political parties equal. By participating in these Republican pay-to-enter gatherings either as a candidate or visitor you're supporting the Republican Party. A smart candidate would say, "My positions, my goals and where I stand are not for sale. If you're going to charge the public to hear me, I will not participate." or words to that effect. What is your position on this?

Council members/candidates flock to every Republican event but seldom to that hosted by the local Democratic Party.

Democrats held a FREE flag pole dedication ceremony on Flag Day this year in Metcalf Park. The Democrats paid for a new flag pole with VOLUNTEERY DONATIONS. The ceremony complete with Boy Scouts flag raising was well done. This action by the local Democrats was an open, non-partisan action to add something to our community. Not one of these NON-PARTISAN council members/candidates attended.

Have the Republicans done anything in the community's best interest without charging a fee? Heck, let me rephrase that - has the local Republican Party done anything in the community's best interest period?

V. Stokes, we don't buy your argument for a minute. There are plenty of venues available without a charge or such a small charge that a responsible political party would pay it as an service to better educate the public on the candidates. And there are restaurants that will allow their meeting rooms to be used in hopes those attending will purchase a meal or at least a drink.

One of the reasons the Republican Party dominates this area is they have the money to do so and much of that money comes from these candidate forums. What a political party it is - always in the public's best interest, right. Oh that's right the Republican Party's philosophy is never do anything that isn't in its' own interest. And V, it is not the amount of money - it is the idea that we have to pay to hear our candidates.

There will be a forum for all of the City Candidates hosted by the Kingman Chamber of Commerce that is open to the public and free. Since the City Council and Mayor are both Non Partisan positions, everyone will be able to vote for any of the candidates on August 26. This will take place in the meeting room at the Powerhouse on July 22 at 5:30 p.m. I hope to see you there!

You think the restaurant gives the space away for free? Only the City and County do that, and that's for already elected officials. You're taking up space that could be used for paying customers.

Maybe they will hold meetings in a City park, but even that normally costs them money and limits space for other patrons.

$2 and you can eat dinner at the same time for the regular price...big deal. I think 5:30 may even be in the lower price window? If you really cared to hear their BS it's a miniscule amount. Personally, listening to politicians campaign puts me off my feed.

I'd much rather see their written statements which can't be explained as a mis-speak.

"Who's with me?"

Right here, Frank! A question have asked many, many times.

Why is it necessary to have an entrance fee? I'd like to hear what candidates have to say but I will never give one red cent. I could go on and on but the bottom line is I should have access to hearing candidates running for public office without financially supporting any party. Who's with me?
