Educational Roundtable on Wednesday

The Association of Commonwealth Teachers is calling interested community members to participate in a pre-election educational roundtable discussion with the candidates.

The purpose is to ensure that teachers, parents, and the community are able to meet the candidates and ask questions regarding their plans for education.

The discussion is tomorrow night, Wednesday, September 25 at 7:00 PM in the cafeteria of San Vicente Elementary.

The 15 Candidates from Precinct 1 have been invited to attend. For more information, please email ACT at cnmiactnow@gmail.com.

Please repost this message on blogs and other media.

You may have noticed the polls listed in the left hand column. Please vote for Senate, Precincts 1-5, the Saipan Casino Act, and the Runoff Initiative. You can select up to 6 candidates for Precincts 1 and 3 and up to 2 candidates for Precincts 2, 4, and 5.

These results are in no way scientific, but it will be fun to see if these polls accurately predict the winners on November 6. May the most popular candidates be victorious!

The polls will end on November 5 at 5:00 PM.

William Betz, the douchebag webmaster of the website that shall not be named, is passing around this email:
My friend John Bowe will be appearing on the Jon Stewart show tonight to talk about his new book, "Nobodies: Modern American Slave Labor and the Dark Side of the New Global Economy." The book's focus is on the plight of Mexican and Central American farm workers in Florida, East Indian labor abuse in Tulsa and Asian "guest worker" abuse in Saipan, an American territory in the Pacific Ocean. John is an award-winning (and excellent) writer. The book demonstrates how "globalization" and the labor abuses (i.e., slavery) that result have had the effect of degrading not only foreign workers who are abused in the U.S. but also the character of our society as a whole. It's important for anyone who cares about the cause of human dignity.

Watch if you have the chance.

Bill
The interview will play on the East Coast, Monday, September 24 at 11:00 PM. It will be up on the Comedy Central website shortly after it airs. I will link to it when it is up.

The Vizu polls can be copied onto other blogs. If you need the code, let me know...but I'd prefer it if you pulled it off of Vizu yourself.
