    I dunno about you but the best debates were the one’s sponsored by the Contra Costa Council where candidates had more time to answer questions and respond to attacks. No offense to Lisa and the League of Women Voters, but in District 5, having to divvy up 20 minutes among five candidates didn’t do justice to any of them. If you want to hear a real debate, click onto

    in Lisa’s March columns. Federal Glover is clearly heads and shoulders above any of the others in terms of knowledge of the issues and — more importantly — solutions.
