John Hall just asked his first question. The first one was from Tom Acker. We did 3 from online and now we are having 3 from the floor.

Sorry I came in late, but has she answered why she won’t release her ND account. All the she said/he said can be eliminated if she’d be open and transparent. If she’s proud of the stand and viewpoint that she expressed, then why won’t she share it. If she’s embarrassed because she maybe got heated, then that’s what mature people do - apologize for believing so strongly and admit that she might have not behaved in the best manner. How are we as citizens to know which Kate is real - the new candidate or the citizen that was quite vocal on ND?

She just mentioned it’s not fair to call her a puppet. If she wants to prove she’s independent, then she has the tool to prove it by showing all what had been public comments

Please don’t bring Nextdoor into this conversation. Kate is hear to answer questions about her goals and vision.
Gail Elena Morrison
42:57
Agree. Sorry.

This is a legit question. I read her posts but don’t remember what her stand was. Her tone was surprising so I’d really like to be able to reread her actual words so I can make an informed decision. I don’t want to read other people’s opinions. Her actual words are criticial
Deborah Lurie
43:56
So ask her.

I thought this was the platform for those who can’t attend in person.
