RoadTrip: Ann Marie Buerkle & Ursula Rozum Town Hall NY-24

I want you to be famous for those exact words. I want peo­ple to call you Colonel Run­away. I want chil­dren laugh­ing out­side your door, ’cause they’ve found the house of Colonel Runaway.

The 11th Doc­tor A Good Man goes to War 2011

While Dan “Colonel Run­away” Maf­fei con­tin­ues to dodge open Forums Ann Marie Buerkle and the Green Party Oppo­nent answered ques­tions from the assem­bled Crowd.

There was some press before the event that took a few shots before

But were not there at the end.

I’ve already posted on the com­ments of the audi­ence (the vot­ers com­ments always take pri­or­ity) now lets look at the event itself

The can­di­dates made their open­ing cases first Miss Rozum

And then Con­gress­woman Buerkle:

I par­tic­u­larly liked the for­mat it max­i­mized the influ­ence of the votes while min­i­miz­ing the impact of the mod­er­a­tor. The ques­tions were sub­mit­ted in writ­ing from the audi­ence, put into a bas­ket and drawn ran­domly by the mod­er­a­tor to be asked, Audi­ence mem­bers were offered the chance to read their own ques­tions if they declined the mod­er­a­tor would read them. The first ques­tion was on Benghazi.

At the time I hadn’t heard about them men going in against orders (more on that tomor­row). The ques­tions con­tin­ued Social Security:

The Econ­omy:

And High Speed Rail which has been an issue of dis­cus­sion in NY as well as California

The ques­tion on Frack­ing was one of only three where an audi­ence mem­ber choose to ask their ques­tion themselves

I wasn’t aware that Frack­ing was a big issue in NY. the Next ques­tion was on Re-​Licensing Nuclear Plants

and Pri­va­tiz­ing Social Security

The Oba­macare ques­tion was very sig­nif­i­cant as lay­offs had just been announced at a local hos­pi­tal over it

and another ques­tion on jobs

I thought the con­gress­woman make a good point on the nature of what a mem­ber of con­gress can do.

Both can­di­dates then made clos­ing state­ments, first Miss Rozum

I thought she was a rather good rep­re­sen­ta­tive for the far left Green Party. She made a pos­i­tive case for posi­tions that many democ­rats would agree with and at the end of the event there were not many of her signs still in the hall to be taken. As her oppo­nent Con­gress­woman Buerkle put it:

Ursula is a woman who has the courage of her con­vic­tions and I think whether agree or dis­agree on one issue or ten issues the only way our soci­ety and our gov­ern­ment and our civ­i­liza­tion is going to come, is going to reach any solu­tions is if peo­ple are will­ing to sit down and have a robust debate and dis­cus­sion on issues and I think her courage as a Green Party can­di­date to do what she has done is to be com­mended and should be appre­ci­ated by this com­mu­nity because what she has done has not been an easy task by any stretch.

That’s pretty high praise from an opponent.

Con­gress­woman Buerkle closed the event with her clos­ing statement

Through­out the event she made a pos­i­tive and ratio­nal case both for her re-​election and on the issues, what was really impres­sive was how she didn’t over promise and talked sen­si­bly tak­ing the vot­ers seriously.

The real win­ners of the event were the vot­ers who were present

Not only did they ask great sub­stan­tive questions

But they had direct access to the can­di­dates who spent a few min­utes after­wards talk­ing to them

And the biggest loser that would be Dan “Colonel Run­away” Maf­fei who after spend­ing 2010 run­ning away from his record has decided a win­ning strat­egy is to run away from the vot­ers. What can you say about a grown man, a for­mer con­gress­man who has less courage than a girl in her 20’s as Con­gress­woman Put it.

Dan Maffei’s absence has been, I think an insult to the vot­ers of this dis­trict I think if he wants the vot­ers to know where he stands on the issues he has a respon­si­bil­ity as a can­di­date to come forth and the (record?) and you all know where he stands.

There were four town halls, one in each county in NY-​24 and Dan “Col Run­away” Maf­fei ducked every one of them for fear they might ask him some­thing that he would have to answer.

There is a clear choice in this race a Con­gress­woman who gives access or a Con­gress­man who runs away.

Re-​Elect Ann Marie Buerkle to Con­gress in NY 24

Because NY-​24 deserves a rep­re­sen­ta­tive who lis­tens to the peo­ple in the dis­trict instead of run­ning away from them

You can kick into her cam­paign here.

Update via the Lonely Con­ser­v­a­tive I sus­pect this video was not shot at the event:

Remem­ber all of this cov­er­age is made pos­si­ble by you. My road trip came to just under $500 not count­ing the time put in dur­ing the three days. So far We’ve had tip jar hits cov­er­ing $180 of those expenses. If you’d like to help sup­port this kind of cov­er­age please con­sider hit­ting DaTip­Jar to ensure this will not be the last of these trips to sup­port GOP can­di­dates that need your help.




I want you to be famous for those exact words. I want people to call you Colonel Runaway. I want children laughing outside your door, ’cause they’ve found the house of Colonel Runaway.

The 11th Doctor A Good Man goes to War 2011

While Dan “Colonel Runaway” Maffei continues to dodge open Forums Ann Marie Buerkle and the Green Party Opponent answered questions from the assembled Crowd.

There was some press before the event that took a few shots before

But were not there at the end.

I’ve already posted on the comments of the audience (the voters comments always take priority) now lets look at the event itself

The candidates made their opening cases first Miss Rozum

And then Congresswoman Buerkle:

I particularly liked the format it maximized the influence of the votes while minimizing the impact of the moderator. The questions were submitted in writing from the audience, put into a basket and drawn randomly by the moderator to be asked, Audience members were offered the chance to read their own questions if they declined the moderator would read them. The first question was on Benghazi.

At the time I hadn’t heard about them men going in against orders (more on that tomorrow). The questions continued Social Security:

The Economy:

And High Speed Rail which has been an issue of discussion in NY as well as California

The question on Fracking was one of only three where an audience member choose to ask their question themselves

I wasn’t aware that Fracking was a big issue in NY. the Next question was on Re-Licensing Nuclear Plants

and Privatizing Social Security

The Obamacare question was very significant as layoffs had just been announced at a local hospital over it

and another question on jobs

I thought the congresswoman make a good point on the nature of what a member of congress can do.

Both candidates then made closing statements, first Miss Rozum

I thought she was a rather good representative for the far left Green Party. She made a positive case for positions that many democrats would agree with and at the end of the event there were not many of her signs still in the hall to be taken. As her opponent Congresswoman Buerkle put it:

Ursula is a woman who has the courage of her convictions and I think whether agree or disagree on one issue or ten issues the only way our society and our government and our civilization is going to come, is going to reach any solutions is if people are willing to sit down and have a robust debate and discussion on issues and I think her courage as a Green Party candidate to do what she has done is to be commended and should be appreciated by this community because what she has done has not been an easy task by any stretch.

That’s pretty high praise from an opponent.

Congresswoman Buerkle closed the event with her closing statement

Throughout the event she made a positive and rational case both for her re-election and on the issues, what was really impressive was how she didn’t over promise and talked sensibly taking the voters seriously.

The real winners of the event were the voters who were present

Not only did they ask great substantive questions

But they had direct access to the candidates who spent a few minutes afterwards talking to them

And the biggest loser that would be Dan “Colonel Runaway” Maffei who after spending 2010 running away from his record has decided a winning strategy is to run away from the voters. What can you say about a grown man, a former congressman who has less courage than a girl in her 20’s as Congresswoman Put it.

Dan Maffei’s absence has been, I think an insult to the voters of this district I think if he wants the voters to know where he stands on the issues he has a responsibility as a candidate to come forth and the (record?) and you all know where he stands.

There were four town halls, one in each county in NY-24 and Dan “Col Runaway” Maffei ducked every one of them for fear they might ask him something that he would have to answer.

There is a clear choice in this race a Congresswoman who gives access or a Congressman who runs away.

Re-Elect Ann Marie Buerkle to Congress in NY 24

Because NY-24 deserves a representative who listens to the people in the district instead of running away from them

You can kick into her campaign here.

Update via the Lonely Conservative I suspect this video was not shot at the event:

Remember all of this coverage is made possible by you. My road trip came to just under $500 not counting the time put in during the three days. So far We’ve had tip jar hits covering $180 of those expenses. If you’d like to help support this kind of coverage please consider hitting DaTipJar to ensure this will not be the last of these trips to support GOP candidates that need your help.
