Senator Jeannemarie Devolites Davis drops out of Fairfax City DebateI've said it before, and I'll say it again. By definition, the job of a member of the Assembly is debate and public discussion. Debates during elections are job interviews, period.
Republican refuses to debate Democrat Chap Petersen
Fairfax City - Tonight was supposed to be the next debate in the 34th Senate District between Democratic challenger Chap Petersen and Republican Jeannemarie Devolites Davis. Instead residents of Fairfax City will be treated to a Town Hall forum with Chap Petersen.
This change of scheduled events is due to the refusal of Sen. Devolites Davis to debate her Democratic challenger in front of an audience with recording devices present. According to communications between the City Democratic and Republican Committees, it became clear that Sen. Devolites Davis would not be willing to participate if her words were to be recorded in any manner.
People who skip job interviews shouldn't get the job.
