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.
Id 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 Leagues
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.
