Congressman Calvert Declines Citizen's Committee Invitation for 2nd Time This Year
Mr. Calvert also skipped committee's candidate forum debate invitation in May
LAKE ELSINORE, CA – September 28, 2014 – For a second time this year, U.S. Congressman Ken Calvert has declined Lake Elsinore Citizen's Committee's (www.LECC.us) invitation to speak before LECC members attempting to decide who they'll vote for in the November 4th general election.
"We are sorry that Mr. Calvert could not find any time for us once again, especially since he missed our first candidate forum earlier this year", stated LECC president Jeanie Corral. "Watching a video is not as effective as seeing a real person." Mr. Calvert submitted a video at LECC’s request after declining LECC’s Spring candidate forum invitation.
LECC communicated with Mr. Calvert's staff throughout the Summer to set up a Fall debate date that would accommodate Mr. Calvert's schedule. Mr. Calvert's consistent staff response was that Mr Calvert's busy schedule simply could not accommodate any commitment to debate his opponent.
To accommodate Mr. Calvert’s schedule, LECC scheduled their Fall debate the day after Mr. Calvert is in the valley to speak at a Temecula Chamber function. "We hope he will reconsider and spend Friday, October 10th with Elsinore Voters. We we will hold his chair open should he reconsider", concluded Ms. Corral.
Lake Elsinore citizen's are invited to RSVP for their attendance at LECC's Fall campaign candidate forum and debate at www.LECC.us.
