SOURCE ONLINE CANDIDATES FORUM

Reposted Oct. 21, 2002
Oct. 9, 2002 – To provide an online forum for candidates running for governor, senator and delegate to Congress, the Source has developed a series of 11 questions for the gubernatorial and senatorial candidates and a set of four questions for candidates vying for the delegate position.
The questions are posted in the Data section of St. Thomas Source, St. Croix Source and St. John Source. Candidates should copy the questions and paste them to their own clipboards, answer the questions, and then copy and paste the questions and answers into an e-mail to be sent back to source@viaccess.net.
We invite all candidates to submit their responses, following the guidelines laid out in the Data section. Responses will be posted in the Open Forum section of the Source newspapers within 48 hours of e-mail receipt. Those from territorywide candidates will be published in all three Source newspapers. Those from candidates seeking district office will appear in the papers for their respective districts.
The Source will publish each candidate's reply exactly as sent, with no editing.
With so many political forums and debates taking place in the days leading up to the Nov. 5 elections, Source publisher Shaun A. Pennington said, it was felt that an electronic approach was the only fair way to allow all candidates the opportunity for equal coverage.
"We commend all of the groups who are sponsoring forums and the broadcast media for their coverage, and we encourage the public to attend as many forums as possible," Pennington said. "But as a print publication, we felt the best way to avoid any possibility of missing what any given candidate might have to say was to offer the candidates the opportunity to make their positions clear."
