As someone who's staying neutral on this primary, I wanted to see what Tierney had to offer in his first interview on T.V. and what I learned about him was mostly biographical and not much in terms of where he stands on issues. Although the interview focused primarily on his background, Tierney did manage to give a few critical remarks about his challenger Duane Perkins and the Democratic endorsed nominee's recent press conference at City Hall last week.
All in all, I was somewhat let down by the fact that Tierney didn't offer any insight into his stance on the issues plaguing the 24th State Senate District during the interview. It's one thing to have a flier with your stance on the issues, it's another thing to be asked questions directly on where you stand on various topics and in my opinion, that's where this particular interview fell short.
That being said, if I were someone who didn't know anything about Tierney, I would say that Terry's appearance was very informative in terms of educating people about background as his family's ties to the area and for many, that could be a factor in their vote.
