  1. There's answers, and there's answers that aren't.

    From the Firpo section:
    You’ve made your administrative experience a centerpiece of your campaign; does it consist solely of your 5 years, 7 months with Applied Magnetics in the 1990s?
    — Concerned voter

    Elan Firpo
    No.Definitely not. I will respond more fully when I have time.

    Then why was it the only non-legal work experience listed on your recently deleted LinledIn profile? Please "make the time", since it's been such a big part of your vague campaign pitch.

    So, concerned voter has been waiting 4 days. The Linkedin Profile you deleted said you left Applied Magnetics in 1998, the year the company's stock tanked and it laid off half its employees. Were you laid off or did you quit?

  2. I suspect "concerned voter" is more likely someone from another campaign. Never the less, Elan is hoping to get back to these late in the week or this weekend. She's been putting in 10 hour plus days at work and has meetings or events scheduled every evening. She has also received many written questions from other organizations. The Mad River Union just sent an impressive list of questions for their publication.


Comments are open, but moderated, for the time-being. Good luck.
