Radio Smart Talk for Wednesday, October 31:


Eugene DePasquale, the Democratic candidate for Pennsylvania Auditor General will appear on Wednesday's Radio Smart Talk.  DePasquale will discuss why he wants to be the state's top fiscal watchdog, what plans he has for the office and why he believes he is the best candidate for the position.

DePasquale, who is from York County, currently serves in the State House of Representatives.

His opponent is Republican John Maher of Allegheny County.

Radio Smart Talk is discussing the issues with the statewide candidates throughout the month of October as part of witf's Election 2012 coverage.

What questions do you have for Eugene DePasquale?

Also, the last Franklin and Marshall College statewide poll before next Tuesday’s election is out.  It shows President Obama leading challenger Mitt Romney 49-45 percent in Pennsylvania.  We’ll talk to pollster Terry Madonna about the poll’s findings and also what impact Hurricane Sandy could have on the election.

    I thought Gene did a great job explaining why he seeks the post, and what his priorities in office will be.
    I was impressed earlier with his opponent Maher's interview.
    Both candidates showed a sense of fairness and backbone-------traits highly desirable in an independent position of Aud Gen, one of the very few we have empowered in PA as watchdog on our elected officials and businesses.
    Whichever person wins, I trust he will act in the best interests of the People Of The Commonwealth------the REAL government, not the insulated group who sit in sybaritic splendor in Harrisburg and who seem to have forgotten they are public servants, not rulers.

    The interview session of both the candidates was brilliant and both had great vision about the future, if they got into the chair. But, I think people are done with Eugene and that may be the sole reason why they have gone for Maher this time.

    The smart talk general magazine was doing pretty much in writing the truth about the politicians daringly. It has got the best essay writers across the nation who write the exact truth of whats going on inside the government.
