FRAMINGHAM – I am deeply disappointed that our request to schedule a series of five (5) election debates has not been accepted by Congresswoman Katherine Clark. She has not even extended us the courtesy of a reply.
As a result, you will not be given the opportunity to hear both sides of the many important issues that are affecting the voters of the 5th Congressional district of Massachusetts including inflation, soaring gas prices, increasing tax rates, the recession, fentanyl pouring into our country, the egregious acts of the Department of Justice targeting parents, her rationale for voting to support the hiring of 87,000 new IRS agents, the emerging importance of school choice for our students, and term limits.
This is nothing new to our campaign as Congresswoman Clark has failed to acknowledge my candidacy to date.
On April 11, 2022, I announced my intent to qualify for the ballot to run for this Congressional seat. On May 10, we qualified for the ballot by collecting far more than the required number of signatures in just 30 days from people who are more than exasperated with our dysfunctional Congress.
I believe that Congresswoman Clark’s avoidance of my invitation to debate is part of a cunning strategy to hide her allegiance to Joe Biden and Nancy Pelosi and their radical policies that are hurting so many working class Americans.
As the Assistant Speaker of the House, Katherine Clark is part of the Democratic leadership in the U.S. House of Representatives. As such, she bears much responsibility for the policies that have caused record inflation and now a recession, the combination of which is straining the budgets of average Americans and threatening the futures of our children and
I would like the voters, constituents, and community groups of the 5th congressional district to know that although Congresswoman Clark is thumbing her nose at our campaign, I will be available to discuss my plans for the future and to answer questions right until the day of the November 8th general election.
Accordingly, our campaign will be conducting empty chair debates during which I will be listening and speaking with voters, while Katherine Clark enjoys her fully paid summer recess as a
member of Congress.
