Independent candidate for District 9 City Council David Adams interviews Libertarian candidate for Controller and District 3 City Council candidate Mark Rauterkus.
The topic is "What is a Libertarian?" and to an extent, "What's a libertarian got to offer our black communities?" Spoiler alert: the answer has to do with tax policy and smaller-scale development.
Part I. Part II.
In addition, Rauterkus's blog reproduced a press release by Adams blasting his opponent, Democratic nominee Ricky Burgess, for his "obvious apprehension with meeting him to discuss an opportunity to debate informally."
Burgess has no plan, other than opening the door to the corrupt developers, who sit in wait licking their lips to take over our district land.
If Ricky Burgess does not come forward, by calling the office of the Adams for the 9th campaign team, by Monday October 1, I will personally challenge him in his church during a service, or resort to Marine tactics which will definitely force him out in the public.
Burgess and Adams will now meet publicly at least once, at a BPEP forum on the 29th. Adams has yet to crash Burgess's church, and no definitive word on whether the threat of Marine tactics motivated this appearance.
The candidates are each meeting the Post-Gazette editorial board tomorrow.
