Mike Mangan was seen by many proof reading his answers prior to questions so he was given the questions before the debate. The other 4 candidates all received "gotcha" questions but of course not Mangan and all his sign holders were from the carpenters union all orchestrated by Carlo. All underhanded and deceitful. These people make me sick.

Wayne was excellent. They tried to bamboozle him right off the bat with the absentee BS and he put that to bed real fast. All the Mangan sign holders weren't even from Everett LOL!!

Is city of Everett payroll giving out a bonus to employees who display Matewsky signs?

I went, at one point Mangan actually read an answer. It was obvious to observers in the hall that Mangan had a heads up on the questions. The other four held their own honestly. The first two questions were indeed targeted to "get" Matewsky, McGonagle, Hanlon and Conellio. That little game was never played with Mangan. It was obvious that Mangan was favored by the moderator. It was extremely unfair to the other four candidates.

As for the sign holders, the situation out front was ridiculous. There was a sea of Mangan signs that made the sidewalk impassable for those of us attending the debate. Only about 4 or 5 of those sign holders came into the debate. The rest just left. I was told later those sign holders were hired (payed) to stand out there and they were not Everett people. It's the same ploy that Mayor DeMaria often uses.

I give Matewsky, McGonagle, Hanlon and Conellio a lot of credit. They all answered the questions and appeared knowledgeable and unscripted.. It was a good opportunity to learn where the candidates stand on some very important issues.

ECTV did tape it. When it airs watch Mangan closely. You will see exactly what I am talking about. You will also see that the other four were targeted in the first two questions. Matewsky in the first question and McGonagle, Hanlon and Conellio in the second question. It's all on tape and can be verified.

As for the sign holders, ask anyone in attendance. We all saw the same thing. I hope the papers took pictures of them. Then we all can see it.

I did not post any lies. Everything I said can be verified.

You are posting lies! I was also there and there were pictures taken so when it is in the paper you point all of those Demaria people. They all prep for a debate and write down information. They have no idea what questions are going to be at the debate. They only know the format. They were all sitting close together don't you think one of the candidates would have seen if Mike had the questions. Just because the moderator asked Matewsky and McGonagle a harsh question does not make it Mike's fault.

I was at the debate myself and can honestly say that what Brad said about the sign holders is true and that Mangan made out easy and he indeed knew the questions before hand. Wayne Matewsky has my vote. www.waynematewsky.com

Well why don't you ask the other candidates if Mike had the questions beforehand, since they were sitting right beside him. They all answered their questions so does that mean they knew their questions beforehand too. Again about the sign holders is false. When the picture comes out you will realize how disillusioned you are.

Actually, if you look at pictures of the five candidates sitting at the table, Matewsky, McGonagle, Hanlon and Conellio were clumped together and Mangan had a space between him and the others with Mangan sitting closest to the moderator.

BTW, no one said the questions that were asked were Mangans fault. Also, I never said there were DeMaria people out there holding signs the other night.

Even Mangan isn't dumb enough to have the questions sitting there. He would just have the answers there.

I think what's delusional is if you believe any candidate would admit to having questions prior. Why don't we watch the debate on ECTV and figure it out ourselves. IMHO Mangan did appear scripted but that's MY opinion. Again, watch for yourself.

As for the sign holders, it was overkill and appeared to be orchestrated. We all know who the sign nut is. Was it deemed necessary to be all over the sidewalk, in the freeing cold while people are trying to get in.... but none actually came in to witness the debate?

Come on. I know appearances can be deceiving but give me a break.

What a bunch of nonsense ALL these posts are. NOT ONE OF YOU are talking about the issues and where each of them stand. This is what's wrong with Everett politics..just a friggin popularity contest. THIS is why this city and STATE is in such a mess. I'm sure I'll just get ganged up on for this comment. Have at it idiots.

I looked at his "website". More nonsense. Does he think I'll vote for him because of UNION ENDORSEMENTS??? NOTHING about the issues!! NOT ONE THING. How does he feel about in-state tuition for illegals?? What's he going to do to crackdown on welfare fraud?? Casino?? Taxes?????? What a joke. When is this debate going to be televised anyway? Was there anything of substance discussed?
