Deborah Goldberg came across as knowledgeable and confident. Her opening remarks where a little long and didnât seem focused enough.
Sam Kelley, as my wife observed, spoke from the heart and came across as genuine. He was the victim of some microphone problems which may have contributed to him not coming across in a smooth and confident manner.
Tim Murray appeared to have the most depth. He was able to articulate city and state issues very well â sometimes a little too detailed though. He too was also the victim of microphone issues and didnât communicate as smoothly as he could have.
I thought Andrea Silbert came across very well. She stayed on her jobs message and answered the questions succinctly and with conviction. While her no-nonsense style was refreshing, I worry that without a softer touch she may not come across as likable enough.
If I had to vote today it would be for Silbert. Of all the candidates she seemed to have a vision and a plan for the Lt Governorâs position. My wife liked Sam Kelley. His âfrom the heartâ style and genuine approach won her over.
