OKAY FOLKS.... 87 Seconds to Kick Off.... Are you all Ready?
Good Day Ladies and Gentlemen. I am Frankie O. Furter Price, Mayor Emeritus of Blogville. I will be the Debate MODERATOR. Today's FURST EVER Mayoral Election Debate is being brought to you with LIMITED Commercial Breaks... by:
ANGEL JAZZI'S TACOS.
Before bringing the Candidates to the stage we need to go over a few things....
The Candidates will each have the same amount of time to state their Pawsition... (like 87 seconds or so) on Each Question.
Upon entering the Auditorium... the audience was instructed that there will be NO outbursts of ANY sort... good or bad... during the debate...
There will be NO questions taken from the Audience.... DURING the DEBATE.... HOWEVER, AFTER the DEBATE has Concluded... You are WELCOME to leave your questions in the COMMENTS section... and the Candidates will try to get to as many as Possible... in their Town Hall meeting.... which will be held at a later date and location.
It was decided... by Ernest vonSchnitzel, that Ladies should go FURST.... So Candidate DORY From California will answer the FURST question FURST.... and then Candidates Murphy and Stanley will answer the SECOND question FURST.. and so on.
I am turning the Microphone over to Miss Dory furst...
1. If you are Elected Mayor of Blogville... HOW will you go about Filling your Cabinet? Will you ask fur Volunteers? Will those who are ALREADY SERVING in Mayoress Madi's Cabinet be OUSTED... or will they be pawmitted to apply again? Could they opt for a Different Cabinet to go into?
As mayor, I will give the present Cabinet members the opportunity to stay in the present positions. If they would like to change positions within the cabinet, I will ask them to write a letter stating why they think they should be appointed to that position. If they would like to retire, I will ask for volunteers! A happy cabinet is key to a happy administration!!
Thank you Dory.
Now, Murphy and Stanley... How would YOU answer question # 1?
Murphy: We have many fine employees in Blogville and we certainly want anyone who desires to
continue in their current employment to know they will have job security. In order to be retained
in the new administration, they just have to state their desire to continue in that position during the
designated period of open employment. However, we do understand that some employees might
be ready to move into a more challenging position or possibly even retire.
Stanley: Anyone who wants to change jobs will be required to resign from their current position
and state the new position that they are interested in. Then we will post all job openings and
anyone who is interested can apply for an open position.
Murphy: But we must add that anyone who has stopped blogging and does not indicate a desire to
retain their position within the designated period will be replaced in the new administration.
Thank you Candidates ... Now for the next question which goes to Murphy and Stanley FURST...
2. What do you see as Blogville's Greatest Assets and its Biggest Shortcomings... AND How will you go about Promoting and improving them?
Murphy: Blogville’s biggest asset is the caring hearts of all our furiends and friends. When anyone
needs help, Blogville circles its wagons and everyone is generous to help.
Stanley: Probably the biggest shortcoming is that furiends often drift off without any closure.
Whenever someone has decided to stop blogging or take an extended break, we need to make sure
it is not a problem within our Blogville community.
Thank you Gentlemen... and now DORY how would your respond to question #2?
Great question, Mr. Furter! Blogville’s biggest asset is it’s sense of community! People can always count on Blogville for support and love. In a world full of humans who move too fast and don’t take time to smell the flowers, we need a place where we, and our humans, can share their loves, lives, ups and downs! Also…we ALWAYS need to take time and smell the flowers (especially on Fridays!!)
The most important thing we can do to promote Blogville, is to keep doing what we are doing, caring and reaching out to others. Whether it is by keeping an eye out for furries that need our support, or just stopping by and making a new friend.
By being a good Blogville “neighbor” you can make Blogville a happy place that will keep growing
Now we move on to question #3... which goes to you furst Dory...
3. What do you plan to do abut SQUIRRELS. Many Blogville citizens are PLAGUED by them and are wanting the situation dealt with.
Squirrels?? Well, when the squirrels found out I was moving up here to the North Coast, they all turned their furry tails and RAN!! I will train anyone who needs it to be an expert Squirrel Hunter!!
Thank you Dory and now we move to Murphy and Stanley for THEIR Response..
Murphy: I have put a lot of thought into this and think it has gotten to be a big enough problem
that it is nearly a quality-of-life issue for our citizens. We would like to see a Squirrel Banishment
Academy established and taught by experienced professors like Molly The Wally or Ruby Airedale.
This way our citizens and those who are young now will be best equipped to deal with this horrible
Stanley: And those who would like to attend the academy but lack the sufficient green papers to
pay for it can apply for a grant so that no Blogville citizen would be denied an education.
Thank you ... and now we have our Final question...
BUTT furst we need to acknowledge our Wonderful Sponsor once again...
4. If you are elected... HOW will you go about getting MORE Kitties involved in Blogville Activities? Mayoress Madi and I Both Tried our best.... always saying EVERYBUDDY is WANTED AND WELCOME... butt it seemed to have fallen on Catnip filled ears.
Murphy and Stanley would you please give us your answer...
Murphy: This is a difficult problem that has perplexed the leaders of Blogville for many years. I
think all we can do is continue to invite them and make Blogville a welcoming place for them to live.
Perhaps a special position can be established within the Mayor’s Cabinet to address this problem.
The doggie or kitty in this position could instigate things like “Take A Kitty To Lunch” or “Kitty
Stanley: I think it would help if we ask all dogs to NOT bark at cats. That might be a hard sell but at
least it’s a place to start.
Dory would you please give us Your response?
Kitties are cute, aren’t they??? I just adore kitties!!! We have a few kitty friends, and I am going to try very hard to make more kitty friends, whether or not I get elected. Maybe it is time for a Kitty Kontest of some kind?? We have found kitties to be very interested in sun puddles, I think I see a kitty sun puddle kontest some time next year for sure!!
The Candidates and I would like to THANK the Audience for your Attention and your EXCELLENT Manners . You were VERY Respectful of the Candidates and their responses...
