Are we informed Plainfield- I say "Not"
PLAINFIELD — Voters who want a last look at the candidates for fire, school, park and village boards before Tuesday’s election can listen to their final pitches in the comfort of their homes.
The Plainfield Television Group, a public-access television organization, has posted recorded statements from each of 15 people running for local office, but what is apparent is that the candidates are not wanting to answer questions, just like the candidates running for the board in Will county. It is awful hard to ask any type of recorded video questions relating to our communities.
In today’s society we demand a more hands on approach then years gone by when it comes to the people that represent us voters, any candidate can post signs, or do a radio spot where they are asked pre judged questions so that the candidate looks intelligent to the public. Now in the age of streaming media, IM’s and a multitude of other methods to get the news out this is not being done, The Plainfield Television Group and politicians are not allowing people to ask the questions that the voters are wanting to ask. It’s just another way of telling the people to shut up and vote, How can any informed voter say they are in fact informed when all you get is pre-rehearsed video and lip service that you as a voter can not respond back to and be heard, But at least you get a last look before you get screwed.

The goal of the program is not to be confrontational, but informational and
Why would any voter think that being a politition is not confrontational and to conduct interviews in this manner is not informational, true it only covers the surface.”Welcome back to the 50’s any one got a beta tape I might want to record this while I am playing with silly putty and drinking a caffeine free soda”. www.plainfieldtv.com to see the candy coated views.
