Instead of requesting live blogs with candidates, at BVBL we will be soliciting questions from readers which we will forward to candidates in the form of an e-mail interview. Our first will be with declared candidates for the Chairman of the Prince William County Board of County Supervisor’s race — none whom have accepted a request for an email interview, but I’m reasonably certain they will.
Although liveblogs have sometimes been interesting, I often see soundbite answers without a whole lot of depth and want to give candidates an opportunity to present more detail in their responses. I think this format has the potential to be more informative, and it also avoids the technical issues that have made some liveblogs a challenge.
I will select five of the best questions submitted in the comments to this post, and add one of my own. Each candidate will get the same questions and have a day or two to provide responses, which will be posted on separate threads. So fire away, the floor is yours…
