City Election 2012: Word On The Street

Back on September 15, I went to the Farmer’s Market on the City Square Plaza and asked a bunch of people what they thought about the city election.

I just got around to editing everything together to share here.

I asked who people were thinking about voting for for mayor (not many would say), what they think are the most important issues and what they think of the current council.

The music you can kind of hear in the background between interviews is played by buskers, Kiernan Anderson and Benjamin Knorr, who were, I think, the third interview clip in there.

  1. These are all the people who agreed to be interviewed that day. I asked other people but for various reasons they didn’t want to be recorded talking about the election.

    But what I’ve posted are pretty much unedited interviews. I cut out some chit chat and some of my “ums” and “ah-has” but all the substance of what the people said is intact.
