Debate discussion

To the Editor:

Your story Dec. 30 (“Andrew Zinke rejects debate with Bill Prim in sheriff’s race”) distorts the record.

I would like to clear up the matter:

Mr. Zinke either committed to a debate under the auspices of Patriots United, or else he left the leaders of that organization with the distinct impression that he had.  That’s according to Patriots United.

Gary Rabine and Brian Kelly have been publicly supporting my candidacy for more than a year. Mr. Zinke must have known that at the time he agreed to a debate.

Patriots United made a significant effort over the past few months to organize a debate. The League of Women Voters has made none.

The Northwest Herald, which hosted both a primary and general election forum in the sheriff’s race in 2010, has no plan to do so in 2014.

If Mr. Zinke is interested in a debate, he will find me open to any reasonable suggestions.

Bill Prim

Republican candidate for McHenry County sheriff
