Editing on this page

Mmillerfsm08- I restored the Seattle Times endorsement under the 2012 Endorsements subheading but added a note to clarify the endorsement was only for the primary. The remainder of your edits to the elections section were preserved under subsection 2010, as the selection of campaign themes you provided appear to have been taken from Watkins' 2010 congressional campaign rather than his 2012 campaign for state auditor.

Again, feel free to contact me on my user talk page. Regards. MStrano 07:17, 23 October 2012 (CDT)

Edits by Fidelisemper and Mmillerfsm08

I have put back in the endorsements that were added by User:Fidelisemper, but also included the citations. I have also removed the four 2010 endorsement sections that have now been disagreed upon by two editors. At this point, a conversation should be had here on this page to explain the reasoning for either including/removal or re-wording of the sections. Those sections are:

  • Disclosure
  • Healthcare Reform
  • Immigration Reform
  • Global Warming

Please discuss here and we will reach a final, agreed upon resolution before adding back into the page. Thank you. --Geoff Pallay 08:34, 28 October 2012 (CDT)

response by mmillerfsm08

Why have we removed the 2010 campaign themes? They were directly sourced to speeches given by Mr. Watkins in his runs for Congress, and taken in context. These are relevant issues to his current race and show the progression of the candidate throughout his political career.

User Fidelisemper raised concern about the possibility that the quotes were taken out of context. The user also hinted at adding back in the information in a more detailed manner. I am interested to hear user User:Fiedelisemper's response prior to the additional edits. Thanks for weighing in, User:Mmillerfsm08. --Geoff Pallay 14:09, 28 October 2012 (CDT)

--They're not out of context, just watch the videos used as a citation. The context is all there...
