 May 29, 2012Dear Chris and Elizabeth,The convention is over and the campaign for our party’s nomination is well under way. Now isthe time to schedule a series of debates based on issues that are critical to constituents and thecountry. As candidates for the Democratic nomination in the 5
Congressional District, we owethe voters in our party the opportunity to learn where we stand.I offer, here and now, a challenge for you to participate with me in 12 or more issue-baseddebates. I provide a list of topics below. These are the issues I’ve been asked about most whilevisiting with thousands of voters in their homes. Please feel free to suggest additional topics.These debates will provide us the opportunity to discuss vital issues and offer our perspectives. Ido not suggest a forum where we simply make pronouncements at a podium. We should stand before the rank and file of our party and answer direct questions about our views on the issuesand be ready to defend our proposed solutions.We have all agreed in the past that we cannot allow the Republicans to win this seat. If you truly believe that as Democrats we offer the best solutions to our nation’s problems, then a series of issue-based debates is the way to prove that to the voters in the 5
Congressional District.My campaign stands ready to work with you on details of scheduling these debates. We haveidentified a number of relevant groups that would make excellent debate hosts.I await your response.Thank you,Dan Roberti, DemocratCandidate for the 5
