Debate cancelled, debate scheduled

From the CV:

The Wilkes-Barre area League of Women Voters has canceled the debate among candidates for state representative in the 120th District, originally scheduled for Wednesday, April 19, at Wyoming Seminary, Kingston. League Co-Chairwoman Jane Manganella said incumbent Rep. Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston, was unable to attend due to a prior commitment, and only one of three Republican candidates, Paul Stebbins Jr., replied.

However another group is sponsoring a Republican candidate debate.

Republicans for Good Government Political Action Committee.....will hold debates before the May 16 primary. Republican candidates in the 120th District (the seat of incumbent Phyllis Mundy, D-Kingston) will debate at the American Legion Black Diamond Post, 386 Wyoming Ave., Kingston, Monday, May 8, at 7 p.m.

There will be two debates on Wednesday, May 10, at the Shickshinny Fire Hall, West Union Street. The first will be at 7 p.m. for Republican candidates for the 20th senatorial district (the seat of retiring Sen. Charles D. Lemmond Jr., R-Dallas), the second at 8 p.m. for state representative candidates in the 117th legislative district (the seat of retiring state Rep. George Hasay, R-Shickshinny).

I was actually looking forward to hearing from the candidates but I see only one responded and I saw his webpage and he was the only candidate to have issues on his site. How come? Isn't the election only a month away?

Phyllis Mundy has a prior commitment? C'mon Haggerty - give her the night off!! She can make calls on your behalf the rest of the week.

Is Mundy for Haggerty? If so, a huge coup for him -- she's got great crossover popularity among republicans in her district. It can only help him, and maybe it will help big time. If true.

lol, these last two comments made me laugh. Sick part is it's probably true. James Haggerty would benefit the most from Phyllis winning this year. He can remain her boss and actually be her boss. One day Phyllis you won't have to ride others coattails. Just hope Jimmy Boy wins.
