Debbie Hardisty on Video
« on: October 09, 2014, 06:27:29 PM »
This was posted on the British news - I think, yesterday.  It's Debbie Hardisty who is running for office in Jersey (not to be confused with New Jersey).  For those who might recognize her name from some of the PI tutorials, Debbie was instrumental in helping me to get the PI Beginners Workshop off the ground.  She was with us for a long time... like 8 years or so.  Now, she's gone into politics!!

We won't know until Oct. 15... that's election day.  She was a bit upset because someone keeps taking down her campaign signs!!  Sounds just like here!!  :laugh2: :laugh2:

Debbie didn't get elected.  Her opponent Kristina Moore got 13345 votes while Debbie received 200.
That's a very big swing!

I saw that, Maureen.  But, as Debbie said, this was only her first time ever to run for an elected office. Her opponent has run before and knows the ropes.  Next time, she'll do better - she said she learned a lot from this experience and will be better prepared next time around.

I don't know anything about Jersey politics, but I wondering if the "Reform Jersey" party is sort of like our "Green Peace" party - not a main stream political party.   I kind of got that impression.   At least, she tried!
