When you have the CV of the candidates at a hustings

We could go to the hustings, and hand out the CVs, and ask questions about
 them!”

Never say crazy things like that in front of Aidan.

Before I knew it, I was whisked over to South Ribble. We’d managed to hustle
together CVs of three of the candidates, and printed little packs of them out.

I asked them questions about their backgrounds, and then Aidan
interviewed me about why looking at candidates’ CVs is important.

Conclusions:

  • This was fun and worthwhile. People in the audience
    looked at the CVs, and seemed to find them interesting.

  • Asking about the CVs led to more “off the cuff” questions,
    digging a bit deeper in to the candidates. Most questions
    just led to party answers the candidates had been trained for.

  • Veronica has still not
    submitted her CV
    .

You can find CVs for your candidates
and find hustings to go to.
