Tomorrow, Monday October 31 at 11:30 a.m., an event (perhaps unusual in these times) will occur on Civil Discourse Now (on Facebook and YouTube). Opponents for a seat in the Indiana House of Representatives will have a conversation, without a moderator, about issues. 1/4
Rep Ed De Laney is the Democratic Party nominee and the incumbent in Indiana’s 86th House District. From the GOP will be me, Mark Small. I won the primary. We shall discuss women’s reproductive rights, the environment, guns, school finance & curricula, and marijuana. 2/4
I’ve yet to see an exchange between opponents for political office that merits the title “debate”. At best candidates strike poses. Rarely do candidates discuss issues. I say this having debated in high school and at DePauw, and having coached at the college level (4 yrs at IUPUI). 3/4
Listeners should be treated to rational discourse. And we’re doing this without a “net,” i.e., a moderator. I’m Mark Small, GOP candidate for Indiana House District 86. I approve of this message. Hell, I wrote it. 4/4
