Missing debates makes it harder to weigh candidate

In a democracy information is very important, especially in selecting the best candidates to represent us. It is very disappointing that candidate Bearup refused to participate in three face to face debates (two invitations from the League of Women Voters and one from KSRM radio).

It is difficult to make an educated decision without an opportunity to judge candidates for one’s self when they are side by side answering exactly the same questions.
