MTB Reminder

Akron Bloggers: Don't forget tomorrow is the inagural session of Meet the Bloggers in Akron. Betty Sutton, candidate for Congress in Ohio 13 will meet us at Cafe Momus. We will start at around 9:30.

Anyone with a blog is invited, not just political bloggers. And if you have a blog, I'd appreciate a plug.

Given the proliferation of candidates, the best bet for a campaign interested in participating is to contact me rather an wait for a call. Just so everyone knows who we're talking about (and so campaigns Googling their candidates maybe find this) the declared candidates are:

Capri Cafaro
Norbert Dennerll
Bill Grace
Gary Kucinich
Michael Lyons
Tom Sawyer
Betty Sutton
John Wolfe

Paul Burtzlaff
C. J. DeLorean
Craig Foltin
David McGrew
Joe Ortega

I'll try to arrange things when I run across contact information, but I'm happy to field offers: pho197 (at) hotmail (dot) com. Note that four candidates were removed from the ballot for failure to collect sufficient signatures (hat tip Ohio13), so we have a mere 13 left.

See you all tomorrow.

My questions for Betty: How important do you think it is that a candidate has lived within the district he or she wants to represent for some reasonable period of time (reasonable meaning at least a year)? And why do you feel it is as important or unimportant as you believe?
