Teague, Tinsley, debate at forum in Mesquite tomorrow evening

Reminder: The final debate between Congressional candidates Harry Teague and Ed Tinsley will be held tomorrow, Tuesday, October 28, at 6 p.m. sharp at the Firehouse in Mesquite (No. 1 Firehouse Road). The debate is sponsored by the Mesquite Community Action Committee and Southern New Mexico PACE, and will be moderated by yours truly, Jose Z. Garcia. The schedule for the candidates is tight, so you should try to get there at least a few minutes before 6 p.m. so we can start on time.

The format will be as follows: I will ask questions of the candidates, who will be given two minutes to answer, and then two minutes will be given to the other candidate to reply and then one minute for rebuttal. After four rounds of questioning the audience will have an opportunity to ask questions.

This is the first opportunity since the primary for voters in the South Valley to see both candidates at once. One of them will represent your interests in Washington D.C. beginning in January.

I would like to ask Mr Teague and Mr Tinsley, why we can not do more trade with Mexico. I think the staff here in New Mexico is not trying hard enought to bring more Border Business with Mexico. All we see is exporting used cars from our Santa Teresa Port.
