VOLUNTEER ON ELECTION DAY
After having been invited over a month ago to the October 27th Central Massachusetts Gubernatorial Debate, the debate sponsors (NECN, the Worcester Telegram & Gazette and the Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce) suddenly “disinvited” me and the other independent candidates officially on the ballot for Governor.
This is outrageous, and a poor reflection of what should be a free, fair and open democracy and election. Casually cutting out the voices of three-fifths of the candidates running for Governor, and in such a cavalier way, crosses the line of clean elections. Voters are entitled to expect to hear about who their candidates are, and what, exactly, they stand for.

If you believe voters deserve to hear from ALL the candidates in the race to be their Governor, sign the petition below. (Cell phone is optional)
