Apparently, one of Ron Saxton's campaign strategies is to do appearances at various companies around Oregon.
Here at BlueOregon HQ, we've been getting emails from folks who work at those companies - asking for suggestions about suggestions for intelligent and incisive questions that will put Ronald in a tough spot, laying bare the lack of vision, logic, and leadership in his ever-shifting public positions.
Here's a recent example:
Assuming the event goes on as planned, I'm going to attend and ask polite but uncomfortable questions. I could probably use some advice on the wording, though. I expect my questions are more likely to be tolerated if they focus on the company's well-being.
Regressive tax policies are bad for the economy, and a slumping economy is bad for the company, but how do I phrase that in the form of a question? How do I challenge his nebulous position on health care in such a way that it highlights the economic impact on the company? Is there a particularly damning or indicative quote from Saxton on his intent to slash education funding?
All I get from his "white papers" are a bunch of mealy-mouthed generalities.
So, BlueOregon readers, if you had a chance to ask Ronald a question - and yet do it politely, so as to not get fired - what would you ask?
