We are going through a time of tremendous change, forget what you know about business, it no longer applies!

Whether you are a Fortune 500 company, a local retailer, manufacturer or a startup, in order for you to be successful, or continue to be successful, you must understand how these changes will affect you. Moreover you must plan for them.

Over 97% of businesses fail; ensure you are not one of them. Management, technology, employees, communication, competitors and consumers are all changing.

Are you maximizing digital and Social Media for research, sales, customer service, building loyalty, generating traffic, increasing margins and ROI?

I would like to make these interviews available as soon as possible since ballots will be in peoples hands very soon.

 

Please either call, text or email me and I can set up your interview ASAP.

 

The 5 questions will be as follows.

 

1 - What is your vision for the City of Show Low?

2 - Do you feel that the citizens have been disconnected from the City Council at all?

3 - What do you believe should be done to maintain Show Low as a great place to live?

4 - What do you believe will be the biggest challenge to Show Low in the coming years?

5 - How would you help to make Show Low even more business friendly?

Explanation of Permanent Base Option, Ballot Proposition 407

Here is an informational flyer for Show Low voters regarding Proposition 407 (a city proposition appearing on the August 30 primary election ballot). It asks voters to consider a permanent adjustment to the state-imposed spending limit, which was established in 1980 based on Show Low’s 1980 expenditures and 1978 population figures. This adjustment is very similar to the Home Rule option that gives the Council local control of the city’s finances. And, like the Home Rule option, there is no impact to the city’s existing taxes or revenues. The difference is that instead of voting for a temporary Home Rule adjustment every four years, the permanent base option would mean not having another Home Rule election for another 20, 30, or more years. Read the complete flyer at http://showlowaz.gov/DocumentCenter/View/1432

Rules and Format:

  • Each candidate will be given two minutes to provide an opening statement and closing remarks.  The order of responses has been predetermined.  
  • After the opening statement we will move to the questioning portion of the debate.  At that point the first person called upon will have 2 minutes to answer the question; all others will have 1 minute to respond.  Again the order of responses has been randomly predetermined.
  • JoAnne Guderian will serve as our timekeeper.   Intro JoAnne…..  JoAnne will have signs to signal the candidates at 30 seconds, 15 seconds and STOP
  • We may add a “lightening round” (time permitting) in which candidates will answer YES or NO – this will be a fast-paced round with no explanations allowed.
  • At the end of the question period, (approximately 1:20pm) we will move into the final statements from each candidate.  Again we will have a 2-minute limit on those.  This order has also been predetermined.

 

     Question # 1 and Opening Remarks – 2min each

 

As part of your opening remarks please introduce yourself to us and share why you are running for Congressional District 1.

 

THIS BEGINS THE QUESTIONING PORTION ALLOWING 2 MIN FOR THE FIRST PERSON AND 1 MIN FOR ALL OTHERS

 

Question # 2

 

Immigration reform seems to be taking front stage again in light of Britain leaving the European Union, in part because of the forced open border requirements and the overall immigration laws in the union. What are your thoughts on borders and immigration reform?

Question # 5

 

  On June 12th, Omar Mateen, killed 49 people and wounded 53 others in a gay nightclub in Orlando, Florida.  It was labeled terrorist attack/hate crime. It was the deadliest mass shooting by a single shooter, the deadliest incident of violence against LGBT people in U.S. history, and the deadliest terrorist attack in the U.S. since September 11th. 

More recently

On July 7th, Micah Xavier Johnson ambushed and fired upon a group of police officers in Dallas, Texas, killing five officers and injuring nine others. Two civilians were also wounded. 

In light of incidents like these, what is your position on our 2nd amendment rights and gun control?

Question # 10

 

This office will be for a shortened two year term and you will need to build consensus with others in Congress to be successful.  How do you plan to do that?

 

Question #11

 

Knowing what you know about our region of this great State, what do you see as the most important issues we face and what will you do to assist with those issues?

 

Question #12

Greetings,

 

My Name is Rob Hephner and I am responsible for the BIRDMAN ON THE MOUNTAIN Podcast that reaches many of the Mountain’s residents weekly.

 

I strive to provide detailed and trustworthy information regarding community events and activities and for this reason I am offering each and every individual running for office in Pinetop-Lakeside the ability to discuss their vision and position on town issues.

 

Each interview will be held separately and will focus on the individual, please no discussing about others running, just yourself.

 

I will have 5 specific question that will be asked during each interview, but you are certainly able to talk about others as well.

 

I would like to make these interviews available as soon as possible since ballots will be in peoples hands very soon.

 

Please either call, text or email me and I can set up your interview ASAP.

 

The 5 questions will be as follows.

 

1 - What is your vision for the Town of Pinetop - Lakeside?

2 - Do you feel that the citizens have been disconnected from the Town Council at all?

3 - What do you believe should be done to maintain Pinetop-Lakeside as a great place to live?

4 - How do you feel the ADOT plans will affect the Town of Pinetop-Lakeside?

5 - How do you believe that Woodland Lake Park fits into the future of Pinetop-Lakeside?

 

All interviews will be conducted 1-on-1 in the Birdman Media Studio located at 518 W White Mountain Blvd

Lakeside AZ 85929. 

All interviews will run in real time without interruption or editing after.

There are no “gotcha” questions planned, however there may be questions that are asked based upon an answer to the original 5 questions.

Candidates will be limited to discuss their own views and not those of others, either positive or negative.

All interviews are Audio Recordings, I will make a short video of your speaking for an overview video to promote all of the podcasts.

 

I look forward to delivering your message to the voters and hope you have a blessed day,
