Guv. M.I.A., two more debates but no Brewer

Vote Goddard for Governor

PHOENIX -- Attorney General Terry Goddard will participate in two candidate forums today, both of which were intended to be a full discussion of the issues involving all the candidates for Governor of Arizona. The problem? Jan Brewer refuses to show up.

"The media-dodging and avoiding clear discussion with the voters of Arizona has been going on for weeks," said Goddard. "There are few things more important than dealing - clearly and thoroughly - with the grave issues that face Arizona including the unbalanced budget, the lack of jobs in our state, the lack of economic development, and the dangers of private prisons. Jan Brewer appears to be hopeful that if she lays low until after the election, she will be off the hook. That is an irresponsible, ill-thought-out strategy that does a disservice to the people of Arizona."

Goddard proudly accepted invitations to debate today at 1:30 p.m. with the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans and tonight at 7:30 p.m. with a large group of education-focused organizations including the Arizona School Administrators Association, the Arizona School Boards Association, the Arizona Association of School Business Officials, the Arizona Hispanic Administrators Association and others. Further information regarding both events is listed below.

Goddard added "There are many questions on the table that Jan Brewer has not answered. I will continue to talk with Arizonans statewide about the issues they care about, and will remain ready to answer any questions they may have."

The first candidate forum is today at 1:30 p.m. at the Devonshire Senior Center, 2802 East Devonshire Avenue in Phoenix and is sponsored by the Arizona Alliance for Retired Americans.

The second candidate forum is tonight at 7:30 p.m. at Scottsdale Community College in the Student Life Center, 9000 East Chaparral Road. It is sponsored by several education organizations.

Help get Arizona back on the right track. Vote Goddard! Vote Democratic!

It is no surprise that Brewer continues not to show up to these debates. Unless she has a special ear piece she will probably not be seen any time before this election. We can just keep enjoying her shining face as a faux Rosie the Riveter on billboards. Goddard’s willingness to debate at every opportunity displays his knowledge of a Harvard grad, and experience as Attorney General. His confidence in these surpasses anything we have seen with Brewer. As his popularity continues to grow hopefully more voters will realize before November 2nd , that Brewer is as good as she shows up for debates….
