Michigan League of Women Voters offers to host debate negotiations for gubernatorial candidates

LANSING; SEPTEMBER 4, 2014: The League of Women Voters of Michigan today announced its president has extended an offer to the campaigns of Gov. Rick Snyder and Congressman Mark Schauer to convene a meeting with the goal of negotiating a debate schedule.

“I’d like to do what I can to help bring debates between our gubernatorial candidates to Michigan voters so they can make an informed decision on Election Day,” said Susan Smith, President of the League of Women Voters of Michigan. “I believe that sitting down at a table together to discuss dates, times, moderators and formats for televised debates will be productive and have a positive outcome that will benefit Michigan voters, as well as Gov. Snyder and Congressman Schauer.”

Smith this week sent a letter to the campaign managers for Snyder and Schauer requesting that the two sides come together for a meeting. The League of Women Voters of Michigan is a nonpartisan organization that encourages informed and active participation in government by citizens. That core belief includes ensuring that voters are educated about candidates and issues before heading to the polls on Election Day.

Smith offered three dates and times for a meeting in early September to take place at the League’s office in Lansing. Smith said: “Voters will see a lot of political ads from all sides between now and Election Day. Debates will help voters cut through the rhetoric and get to hear from the candidates in their own words and more fully understand where they stand on important issues. The League is willing to help in any way it can to facilitate debates.”
