(Editor’s Note: I was asked to be a panelist at this year’s Candidates Night (yeah!), but I am unable to attend due to my real full-time job (boo!). I will, however, be given the opportunity to submit a few questions. As a result, I will be soliciting questions from readers over the next week. If you have a question you’d like asked in either debate, please email email@example.com.)
