Each candidate got time to address things like the proposed Alaska LNG Project, education, and fishing but there was also laughter such when unopposed Sen. Seaton asked himself questions, answered, and rebutted. FacebookTwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享The League of Women Voters held a forum for local state representative candidates which addressed issues but also had a light side. When asked what his top priority would be if reelected, Sen. Micciche said there’s a number of them. Laurie Moon attended the October 30 event  which featured candidates Shauna Thornton, Rep.

She said it was good to hear some of the candidates perspectives that she hadn’t heard before. Sen. Micciche(District O, R): “We have to make the tough decisions, we have to reduce spending significantly over the next three to five years, get to a sustainable level, by that time hopefully we will have our economy diversified with a stable oil price, increased production and an economy that’s somewhat booming because of the planning for the natural gas pipeline project.” Treider: “The prevalence of big money in the political system has totally stifled political discussion between people, until we get this dealt with we don’t have any hope of trying to resurrect a people’s government.”last_img read more

‘We relish the back-to-back matches’ – Holden

first_imgBut it’s something to thrive off, particularly with the Robins attempting to make it three wins from as many games.“Momentum is really important on the back of such a good win against Derby and we hope to continue that,” Holden explained ahead of the weekend’s trip to Hull City.“Hull is a long trip for everyone involved and we hope to send our supporters home happy. Momentum in football is key and we’re really concentrating on making sure our performance is right, like it was the other night, and if we get our performance right then we have a real chance of getting a result.”City faced QPR at Ashton Gate before travelling to Derby County where they recorded six points from both matches but preparation and rest in between fixtures is of paramount importance if the players are to be able to perform.“Two away games in the space of four days is always tough, one and off the pitch and we have to be professional with our recovery,” Holden continued. “It’s a long trip to Hull but it’s one we are looking forward to, trying to build on another win and three wins in a week would be fantastic.”Consecutive away days also means more miles for City’s dedicated fanbase to travel but everyone connected with the club is grateful for that incredible support.And if there’s one thing a positive performance and result can do this Saturday, it’s send supporters home “with big smiles on their faces”Holden said: “The support from our fans is so important, whether they are in the stadium or at home, we feel the support. The players have been commenting about their reactions on social media and it’s important not to get carried away of course but there’s a real feel-good factor.“We’ll be really grateful to the fans who travel up to Hull at the weekend and we want to send them home happy with big smiles on their faces.”Back the boys at the KCOMlast_img read more
