Vuode Senatorial Debate
Let me first say how honoured we at Beric'ht Talossan are to be able to present this debate between Vuode's two Senatorial candidates, incumbent Sir Trotxâ Betiñéir, UrN, and challenger Éovart Grischun. Both of these fine politicans are looking for your vote, Vuode - and it's our privilege to help them speak right to you. I will be your moderator today.
And remember, Vuode, if you email us at BerichtTalossan@gmail.com and become a subscriber, then you get to read your special election coverage - including coverage of this race! - just a little bit earlier than everyone else, as it's delivered right to your inbox!
I'll review the approach we'll be taking, first.
The format will be familiar to observers of past Talossan Senatorial debates. There will be an opening statement, given by a candidate chosen at random and with a maximum length of 600 words. Then their opponent will get to give a reply of the same length. If I think it's worthwhile to have a bit of further discussion, or if candidates particularly demand it, a round of rebuttal and counter-rebuttal will follow, both of 300 words. I may permit an additional second round of rebuttals if I think it would help clarify the points, but we're not going to go back and forth on any one topic for a long time.
Candidates may address myself, the fine province of Vuode, or each other, as they please. Whomever you speak to, please be courteous. This debate is not to solve any issues, just to illuminate your positions on them. We'll keep it brisk and readable for the voters of your province. The questions have been written and certified by a multi-party panel of Beric'ht Talossan staff, and I hope they will be enlightening.
The flipping of a coin has randomly chosen S:reu Grischun to go first.
We will begin with a simple enough question - and one you might already be prepared to answer.
S:reu Grischun, please introduce yourself to the citizens of Vuode, and tell us why you would be a good Senator, taking care to name your accomplishments and qualifications. Please remember to keep your answer at a brief 600 words or fewer.
