“We’ve heard from our mayor, the incumbent. As a reminder, each candidate has been allotted two minutes for closing remarks,” the mayoral debate’s moderator said. “Now we’ll hear from the challenger.”
“Thank you, Dan,” the challenger said. “These are frenetic times, my friends. What we need in this town is incisive leadership, not someone, like my opponent, who has been halfhearted, at best, in the way he has run the city government. He represents a fringe faction of our citizens and in this election he will resort to almost any underhanded and possibly even illegal tactics to keep him and his cronies in positions of power, which would spell economic catastrophe for our fair city. I respectfully ask for you vote for me so that we can get our city back on track and start moving forward once again. Thank you.”
