Voices of the Voters Ny-24 Clay Town Hall 10-26-12

One prob­lem I ran into dur­ing my road trip was a reluc­tance on the part of avg vot­ers to go on Cam­era. The Big Excep­tion was in NY-​24 at the Clay Town Hall can­di­date forum. About 75 vot­ers came to Watch Con­gress­woman Ann Marie Buerkle (R-​NY) and Green Party Can­di­date Ursula Rozum answer ques­tions on a wide vari­ety of issues. Demo­c­rat Can­di­date and for­mer Con­gress­man Dan Maf­fei skipped this town hall as he has every pre­vi­ous one.

How­ever the vot­ers were there and talked to me. First was Ralph:

My bat­ter­ies died in the mid­dle of the inter­view so I shot a 2nd part

Lee had some Choice words for Dan Maf­fei miss­ing the event:

One Lee talked to me the dam was opened and peo­ple queued up to speak to me, First Michael on Obamacare

Mark who had com­ments on High Speed Rail

And Ed on Cap­i­tal Gains

I’ll have the video of the Q & A later and the Candidate’s reac­tions but what about vot­ers? I talked to Gary

There is one con­stant theme in all these inter­views, Ann Marie Buerkle acces­si­ble, and run­ning on her record. Dan Maf­fei not accessible.

If this is what’s going on after two years, I think Con­gress­woman Buerkle will do very well come elec­tion day.

Inci­den­tally if you are won­der­ing why there are no Maf­fei or Rozum sup­port­ers were inter­viewed, it’s sim­ply because none were will­ing to talk. I gave a gen­eral invi­ta­tion to the crowd and went from per­son to per­son, I can’t make peo­ple talk to me nor will I film a “non-​combatant” with­out permission

One problem I ran into during my road trip was a reluctance on the part of avg voters to go on Camera. The Big Exception was in NY-24 at the Clay Town Hall candidate forum. About 75 voters came to Watch Congresswoman Ann Marie Buerkle (R-NY) and Green Party Candidate Ursula Rozum answer questions on a wide variety of issues. Democrat Candidate and former Congressman Dan Maffei skipped this town hall as he has every previous one.

However the voters were there and talked to me. First was Ralph:

My batteries died in the middle of the interview so I shot a 2nd part

Lee had some Choice words for Dan Maffei missing the event:

One Lee talked to me the dam was opened and people queued up to speak to me, First Michael on Obamacare

Mark who had comments on High Speed Rail

And Ed on Capital Gains

I’ll have the video of the Q & A later and the Candidate’s reactions but what about voters? I talked to Gary

There is one constant theme in all these interviews, Ann Marie Buerkle accessible, and running on her record. Dan Maffei not accessible.

If this is what’s going on after two years, I think Congresswoman Buerkle will do very well come election day.

Incidentally if you are wondering why there are no Maffei or Rozum supporters were interviewed, it’s simply because none were willing to talk. I gave a general invitation to the crowd and went from person to person, I can’t make people talk to me nor will I film a “non-combatant” without permission
