The Rick Howe Show – Tuesday, October 6, 2020
9 a.m. John Bignell is running for councillor in District 12. One of the candidates is refusing to take part in the debate. Why?
Debates are often the only time during a campaign when candidates are together at the same time in the same place. This allows voters to make side-by-side comparisons. The opportunity is an important part of our elections and our democracy. If a candidate won't answer your questions or speak in a public forum to the community while trying to earn your vote, do you really think they'll care about your concerns or return your calls after they get elected?
That is why I have always said "yes" to any debates or surveys from community groups or residents. I am the candidate that will always answer the call.
