Need more in 14th race

To the Editor:

I noticed that in the last congressional election in the 14th District there was very little interaction between the two candidates – Dennis Anderson and Randy Hultgren.

They appeared at functions together, but I do not believe there has been much give and take or a real debate. So far this election, Anderson has had several town hall meetings open to everyone and open for questions. Hultgren has held meetings, but run by his staff. He also has had a couple of appearances, but has restricted the topics. I think one on home schooling and the other on the heroin problem.

I challenge both candidates to appear in public together for a series of debates. It seems like an open and fair way for the voters in the 14th District to really find out about these two candidates.

Maybe the League of Women Voters of McHenry County or even the Northwest Herald could sponsor these debates.

No excuses, boys.

Let’s get out and let the public see who you are and what you believe.
