Legitimate Candidates Belong in Gubernatorial Debates

By Co-Chair Barbara Dahlgren

Tonight (Friday, October 19th) the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association (WBA) held a debate for the gubernatorial candidates, but they had no intention of including any of the other candidates who are on the ballot.  All candidates filled out the appropriate paperwork and collected at least 2,000 signatures to legitimize their campaigns for ballot access; yet, the Wisconsin Broadcasters Association believes attaching a dollar amount and corporate poll numbers (which often don’t include parties and candidates besides the Democratic and Republican candidates) are better deciding factors than the Constitution and the judgement of Wisconsinites to determine who they want to lead Wisconsin.

The Green Party and Dr. White’s gubernatorial campaign object to the WBA’s undemocratic omissions of candidates.  The American tradition of debates should not be a private affair. Debates should be public events where all candidates can present their ideas in equal time to the public.

Governor Forum #2

Original post from mwhite4gov (Candidate Forum).

There is a forum this afternoon at Edgewood High School, in the Krantz Center (2219 Monroe St, Madison, WI 53711), at 4:00 pm. If you are in the area or love to drive, stop by to give support to Michael White and listen to the wonderful discussion the candidates have.

If this is anything like the previous forum, it will be a calm, pleasant, and enjoyable discussion among the candidates.

Governor Forum

Four Wisconsin Governor candidates gathered for a forum in Madison Thursday night:

  • Maggie Turnbull (Independent)
  • Phillip Anderson (Libertarian Party)
  • Michael White (Green Party)
  • Arnie Enz (Wisconsin party)

The numbers were small, but it made for wonderful discussion with each candidate on a more personal level.

The panel itself was calm, humorous, and informative. Of course, few minutes were allowed for each candidate to answer a question, but with no mud-slinging, great points and perspectives were made. In fact, it allowed a sharing of information and solutions for each person and candidate to learn from.

If anything should be taken from this forum, it’s the proof that a constructive discussion (not a debate) can allow us to cross parties, work together, learn from each other, and make informed and appropriate decisions that are better for everyone.
