Announcing Electionland: You Ask City Council Candidates the Questions

Posted By on Thu, Oct 15, 2009 at 6:15 PM


There is a Boise City Council election coming up Nov. 3, with three seats on the line. In lieu of the standard old election guide (which is never standard, nor old at BW), we are letting you the readers and/or voters, call the shots this year.

At Electionland you can ask the eight candidates whatever you want:

What's you favorite color?
What's the square root of 749?
Why did you take money from ____________ (ACORN, Club for Growth, Nazis, Commies, fill in the blank)?

And then the candidates can answer you directly, without the media spin, or filter.

This is a form of crowdsourcing, where we harness new technologies to greatly expand our reporting. We hope you will take advantage of it, and who knows, your question and their answer may appear in the Boise Weekly in the next few weeks.

Good luck and happy querying. It's not as easy as it looks...
