  1. This will be my first forum. What is acceptable questioning or politicking to find out where potential delegates stand before voting?

  2. Jim,

    Most forums I have been to have been rather quick and efficient with no discussion of candidate’s views. The best thing to do is find a pastor in your circuit who is conservative and favors the churchmanship that Rev. Harrison represents over the busino-socio-psychological approach to church of President Kieschnick (your own pastor?) and chat with him ahead of time about the lay of the landscape in the circuit and then discuss approaches that can get good delegates elected.
