Paul Stein to Moderate April 16 District 3 Candidates Forum in Murphys

Murphys, CA ... Former County Supervisor Paul Stein will moderate a forum featuring Mike Borean, Merita Callaway, and Mike Oliveira, the three candidates hoping to serve District 3 residents as their County Supervisor for the next four years. Organized by the Murphys Community Club and the Murphys Business Association, the Town Hall Meeting will be held in the Native Sons Hall on Wednesday, April 16 starting at 7 p.m.The Native Sons of the Golden West Hall is located at 389 Main St., Murphys, CA. During the forum, each candidate will make short opening and closing statements. They will be asked a series of questions by Stein, and there will be questions posed by members of the audience....

Stein is replacing Joel Metzger who recently resigned as editor of the Calaveras Enterprise and is no longer available. “Paul certainly knows the county issues, and has moderated many forums such as ours,” said Sue Friedman, Murphys Community Club president. “We very much appreciate his willingness to take on this assignment. We look forward to a lively discussion.”

Stein was elected Supervisor of District 2 in 1997 and served two terms. He was Chairman of the Board of Supervisors in 1999 and 2003.

Why Stein?

Why would anyone want Paul Stein to moderate the so called debate? Is Paul Stein a neutral voice or is it possible he might favor the person he served with on the Board? I don't know the answer but I would definately question the wisdom of having a former Board member who worked closely with another Board member who happens to be running for the hundreth time. It would seem appropriate to have a moderator who has no skin in the game because as we have seen in other debates the moderator can steer the debate as they choose. If I were running for the office I would think hard about this choice of a moderator and whether this individual will treat each person fairly. Just saying!

      at least Wilensky didn't represent someone wanting to cut up Copperopolis up into quarter acre lots.........

    When you criticize someone, and imply he might be dishonest, don't you think you should be brave enough to sign your name and be accountable for your unsupported opinions? Don't know this person, but the criticism is certainly unfair. He might just hate the incumbent, as you seem to.

      Not dishonest, maybe a bit bias. There is a difference. I just think the moderator should be someone other than a person who has served with one of the people running for the office. I have no dog in the fight other than to make sure the process is fair. I thought all you libs loved fairness?

Don't know who this man is but I always trust someone who has a photo with equal foliage and running water- beautiful.
