Paid election letter: 8th District congressional debate
While visiting with those in the district, many have requested a debate between Emerson and Parker, yet Ms. Emerson continues to refuse. She has her voting record, and Parker has his platform to present to the voters. With a fair moderator, what better way for the people to decide who they want to represent them in the 8th District? Our election should not be based on who has the most money to spend on ads, but rather a forum that places both candidates on a level playing field. Personally, I want to hear from the candidates themselves. If you agree, please contact Ms. Emerson and ask for her participation. Thank you.
