BRIDGE PARK LOSES BID TO HOST MOCK DEBATE

Bridge Park Mayor Ben Dover
"I'm just a simple man!"
Mayor Ben Dover hoping to put Bridge Park in the limelight, tried unsuccessfully to have mock candidates posing as Romney and Obama, debate presidential policy on national television.  Dover had hoped to capitalize on the political fever gripping the country by having Bridge Park hold a no holds barred mock debate in prime time.  "If I could have signed some good mock candidates, it would have worked," he told Channel 1 News. Invitations were sent out to Clint Eastwood and Bill Cosby and a host of other notables such as Kirk Douglas, Al Pacino, Samuel L. Jackson, and Eddie Murphy. The only reply came from the estate of Marlon Brando, explaining his passing away in 2004.  Belated condolences were sent to his family by the Mayor.
As moderator, the Mayor had some tough questions lined up that he says would have had both candidates reeling.  "I would have brought out the true men with questions like, boxers or briefs, blond or brunette, Coke or Pepsi, or my favorite, football or baseball?  I'm a simple man who likes to keep it simple.  If we can find out what these guys think about the ordinary things, we'll know how they would fit in in Bridge Park.
Channel 1 News will continue to monitor the situation as the Mayor vowed to continue looking for ways to get Bridge Park into the limelight.
