Ms. Keith contacted the Almanac to say she would be attending. Her name was not listed on the event flier, but we have updated the story.

I HAVE NEVER SEEN ANY ONE OF YOUR NAMES IN THE DIALOGUES WHICH TRANSPIRE HERE. I AM A LIBERTARIAN AND NOT REPUBLICAN, BUT I DO NOT UNDERSTAND WHY YOU DO NOT LET YOUR VOICES BE HEARD ON SOME OUTLANDISH ISSUES.

The office of Supervisor isn't party affiliated. So why the Democratic interviews?
