Like a lot of Republican challengers in Massachusetts I am feeling the frustration of an incumbent refusing to debate. Actually in the case of my race in the Eighth Suffolk District, it’s worse.
I received a letter from incumbent in July saying
“I anticipate that local organizations will organize debates this fall, and I look forward to participating in them with you.”
The mistake I made was in believing her.
More below the fold…
Over the last few days my campaign has spoken to three of those local organizations. The Back Bay Association was interested…until they found out my opponent was Marty Walz. The Beacon Hill Civic Association says she won’t return their calls. The West End Civic Association told us Walz said she wasn’t interested in debates.
Of course given her record of tax increases, anti-job voting history, her votes for unsustainable spending and her support for Sal DiMasi for House Speaker, I wouldn’t want to debate me either.
But at least be honest about it. Read the entire press release HERE.
