Northeast News: Missing In Action
Deets . . .
"Representatives of our organization as well as representatives of the Northeast Chamber of Commerce have repeatedly attempted to reach the prosecutor and invite her to a moderated candidate’s forum on the evening of October 29. Over eight attempts have been made by three separate individuals since the first days of September, to be exact, but we’ve yet to hear a peep from the sitting prosecutor.
Of course, COVID-19 has changed the debate/forum game this year and the prosecutor isn't the only politico to skip out on public events.
As the homicide rate reaches a historic milestone, we can only expect more push back from the public against politicos who have allegedly distanced themselves from the community of voters.
You decide . . .
