Cappiello / Murphy debates

The New Britain Herald's Scott Whipple is reporting that the Cappiello / Murphy debates are being scheduled. The article doesn't mention if Green Harold Burbank will participate.

The one comment that really caught my attention was

"Given that a debate appearance has been scheduled in my hometown of Danbury," Cappiello wrote to Murphy, "I would be happy, in the interest of fairness, to participate in a debate hosted in your adopted hometown of Cheshire

That'd be great to have a debate here in Cheshire. As you could imagine, I would be there asking my question - America has $53,000,000,000,000 in unfunded long term liabilities. What will you do about it? Of course, I've already posed that question to both of them... but I think a lot of other people would be curious to hear their answers.

Or I could ask them about their view on a return to the gold standard as a way to ensure the long term value of the dollar. Hmmm... that could be fun!

Unfortunately, Chris already rejected a Cheshire debate. His spokesperson said a Meriden debate is close enough. Maybe I'll go to the Meriden debate.

Hello. I am Harold Burbank, CT Green Party candidate for US House. Yesterday the CT League of Women Voters barred all CT Green Party US House candidates from their debates. We want to enter (v. Murphy and Cappiello in my case). Please call CT League of Women Voters at Hamden, 203-288-7996, to demand entry of CT Green Party US House candidates in League of Women Voters debates.

Thank you,

Harold Burbank
