Candidate Questions 2018

Portsmouth City Councilor Candidate, Nancy Pearson, answers the Tug’s Tough Questions.

Q: Do you like the Tug? And what is your understanding of how website hosting works?

A: I like the Tug enough. I assume website hosting is when you throw a party for all your websites and serve website themed drinks like SEO-tinis and Analytics Spritzers?

Q: Would you rather fight one Blalock-sized Pearson, or 3 Pearson-sized Blalocks?

A: I’m a lover, not a fighter.

Q: Tell us a secret about yourself that might negatively affect your campaign. Please keep it under 140 characters so it is convenient to Tweet and paint on an overpass.

A: In high school I danced on stage and drank champagne with Bono and the Edge to the U2 song “Party Girl” and when a security guy tried to grab my instamatic camera (Google it) out of my hands, I may or may not have bitten him to get him to let go.

Q: Are you passionate about Portsmouth? Enough to literally have sex with it? Don’t think about it too long, the mechanics are confusing.

A: See above comment about being a lover not a fighter.

Q: If you press this button, one random candidate you don’t support will never get on the council, but one random candidate you do support will never eat bacon again in their lifetime. Do you press the button?

A:  I always press the button.

Q What is your all time favorite conspiracy theory?

A: The one where I plotted to run for, and win a seat on, the Portsmouth city council back when I lived in Dover in 2011.

Q: Finally, there’s AN historic trolley speeding down the track, coming to AN historic junction. You are standing at the historically designed switch box, dressed historically. One track leads to a set of luxury condos. On the other, a new parking garage. Do you pull the switch to save the condos, or the parking?

A: Does my costume involve a custom made corset? Because I really want an occasion to wear a custom made corset.
