Throwback Thursday: #WTFWeVote

I really like American History and Government.  I had great Government/Civics/History teachers in Middle & High School and at one point I thought I wanted to be a history teacher.  Well, I was pretty psyched when I found out about this event:


Tuesday evening was the Charlotte Mayoral Candidate Forum, commonly referred to as #ShakeUpCLT and #WTFWeVote.

The first half of the night was pretty cool.  It was PechaKucha style which I love, so I was totally on board.  (if you’re not familiar with PechaKucha, click this link.)

Once 20 slides in 20 seconds was complete, it was time for a rapid fire Q&A.


One of my favorite parts of the evening?  Julie’s comment on my Instagram post of the above picture:

That looks like the worst play ever.

    • Ha! I realized as I typed everything out it was becoming apparent who I was leaning toward, who I didn’t like, and who I wanted to know more about. That’s why I only added “intros” to Clodfelter since he’s currently the Mayor and spoke first. I will say, I definitely learned who I am not voting for…and who I thought I’d vote for, but who I want to know more about because I think I’d vote for them. It was definitely a great, educational event.
