Let's Rumble

On Friday night UFT presidential candidates Randi Weingarten and Kit Wainer appeared together. I'd read it would be a debate, but people now tell me that each candidate simply made a statement.

The group who hosted the event posted a notice suggesting Wainer was the clear winner, but as far as I know there's no record of the event beyond the photo, at left, of Mr. Wainer and Ms. Weingarten discussing the issues.

Why don't we have a real debate, with the candidates questioning one another, and post it on the net, so all UFT members could watch it? It could be arranged and accomplished in 24 hours.

We could find an objective moderator somewhere that both sides could agree on.

Whichever side you may be on, we do have a choice, it is important, and we ought to be able to compare and contrast the candidates.

So what do you say?
