Did everyone see the local candidates on YouTube?
Now, its your turn. St. Paul E-Democracy will be collecting YouTube statements on a
variety of St. Paul issues, starting this Monday.
This Monday, we'll be collecting testimonials or statements from anyone who wishes
to comment on the proposal to use IRV voting for local elections in St. Paul. ALL
you have to do is contact me, Gary Thompson, and let me know that your coming. We'll
record your statement and upload it to YouTube.
If anyone is interested in helping - OR, learning how to record and upload videos to
YouTube, come along and we'll show you how (you can help with this project).
On an experimental basis, once or twice a month St. Paul E-Democracy Outreach will
extend its tabling work at Rondo Library to a provide a St. Paul Issues Video Kiosk.
Statements will be informative in nature, following the spirit of St. Paul
E-Democracy's mission (see below). Gary Thompson will be coordinating the St. Paul
Issues Video Kiosk along with several SPED volunteers. Please contact him to
St. Paul Issues Video Kiosk will provide those who want to make a short statement on
that specific issue with an opportunity to tape short statements similar to the St.
Paul City Council and School Board candidates' statements, to be uploaded on
YouTube, and eventually some on SPNN as a St. Paul Issues Series.
St. Paul E-Democracy Outreach will choose the issues to be discussed. We expect all
statements 1) to stay on the designated topic, and 2) to adhere to the rules of
civility that foster a respectful exchange of information and ideas and stay on the
designated topic. While the format is not completely parallel to the St. Paul
Issues Forum, SPIF, general rules of civility apply. See
SPED reserves the right whether to use and upload/distribute (to YouTube and/or any
other venues) video statements that conflict with our rules or mission
St. Paul E-Democracy Mission Statement.

informs, engages, and empowers community members in the public life of St. Paul
by building online forums and other tools for public dialogue, and by making those
