Last night, Thursday, 8 April 2010, the Bostonian Tea Party in Redding, CA sponsored the first of several planned candidate debates/forums at the McLaughlin Performing Arts Auditorium, 1805 Sequoia St., Redding, CA .
Originally planned to be a debate between myself and Congressman Wally Herger, it ended up being a comprehensive 2+ hour Q&A for yours truly…Colonel Pete. At the last minute, the Herger campaign advised the Bostonian Tea Party planning committee that the congressman would not debate a fellow republican during the primary. Go figure. Certainly would have been nice to allow all those in attendance to listen to both candidates answering some very tough questions.
Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the evening. The audience was great. The host and moderator exceptionally courteous. And, I believe it was an superbly informative evening for all who attended.
I’m off shortly for the Colusa Parade which begins at 5PM. I always enjoy walking in parades and meeting all the great folks.
