As we enter the final month of the 2020 State Representative campaign and seeing that nothing is of the normal that we could have imagined in February when nomination papers became available.
Seeing that the voters of Everett should hear directly from Representative McGonagle and I on the important issues facing our city and state.
I today put out a challenge to State Representative McGonagle that we both work together to see a one hour debate can occur and be shown as often as possible on ECTV and covered by the local news media over the next 30 days.
I would like to ask someone in the business community or the Everett Democratic City Committee to be willing to step forward and host this debate.
We could do it inside of the ECTV studio of course following social distancing guidelines.
I will work with the State Representative to see this is possible if he is willing.
I will make myself available 24 hours 7 days a week. I strongly believe this would be a great opportunity to allow the voters of Everett to hear from us directly and help make their decision clearer before voting.
I hope to hear from Representative McGonagle in the coming days on his decision.
