More on the 4-yr. candidates from the NAACP forum (32)

(32nd in a series of posts on candidates for election)

 BCDC is hosting a candidates’ forum May 6, 6PM,
at Steelworkers Hall,
53 E. Lehigh St.

Election Day is May 21

5 candidates

vote for 3

Earlier Gadfly posted videos of the presentations these candidates made at the NAACP candidates forum on April 22.

After those presentations, the ageless, indomitable, irrepressible NAACP president Esther Lee “hit” each candidate with a question.

It’s a situation that can make you wish your petitions were ruled unacceptable.

(In one of his classic films, the zany Groucho Marx ducked such a tight situation by saying, absurdly, “Excuse me, I have to step out in the hall and get an x-ray”!)

The candidates may be muttering and grousing about the questions/prompts Gadfly is posing to them (#6 coming next week), but at least there’s time to respond.

Gadfly says with a smile.

But not here.

Here you are on the spot.
