Letter: Let them debate
Thank you for your editorial in this week’s Review (Let Them Debate, Aug. 24). Props to the League of Women Voters, who always deserve special mention.
As one of six Arizona delegates to the Green Party nominating convention in Houston (“Houston, we have a solution,”) I brought back enthusiasm for promoting the Jill Stein/Ajamu Baraka ticket, in addition to touting my own run for state representative (District 1).
At a breakout workshop on the last day, one seasoned operative exhorted us not to play to the illegitimate 15 percent polling hurdle. Your message, in keeping with that, was direct and unambiguous. Of course Jill and Gary Johnson should be in the debate(s). Thing is, the D’s & R’s might decide not to hold any debate at all.
All of us Greens are grateful for any mention in the traditional media. Thanks, and keep it up!
