On Wednesday evening, Gary Johnson will host what he says is the “first ever live, unmoderated online video town hall” by a person running for president of the United States.
I’ve copied the note the Johnson campaign sent out for you to see and partake in the festivities if you so desire:
The event will begin at 8:00 PM EDT (5:00 PM PDT) on November 2, 2011.
During the town hall, Governor Johnson will engage directly with the public and field live video questions over the web.
The event will enable a direct digital dialog with the public and engage in open Q&A on key issues like smaller government, the economy, drug policy reform, tax reform, or any question a participant wishes to ask.
No topic will be off limits.
Yowie.com founder, and former Philadelphia Flyers president, Jay Snider, had this to say about the event:
“Considering this is the first unmoderated online video chat by a U.S. Presidential candidate, we hope it sets a good example of how technology can help further bridge the gap between voters and their elected officials and candidates.
“Governor Johnson will be able to bring his message directly to the people in a give and take format, and we are honored to be able to provide this platform for him.”
There you go, consider yourself informed!
