Morgan Griffith is looking for our congressman too:
Nobody can argue with that. Maybe Boucher is waiting for the Abortion Rights Action League or the AFL-CIO to sponsor a debate. Turf he'd feel right at home on.Griffith Accepts SWVA Realtors Debate; Boucher Noncommittal(Christiansburg, VA) -- Congressional Candidate Morgan Griffith today announced his participation in the Southwest Virginia Realtors candidate forum set for October 21st in Abingdon.
"I'm happy to take the time to discuss issues of great importance with our local realtors," said Griffith. "I would like to debate these issues with Rick Boucher, but it seems that the congressman is reluctant to leave Washington to meet with the people back in his district. Congress will not be in session on October 21st, so I hope Rick Boucher will accept this opportunity to return to the 9th District and address the issues facing Southwest Virginia citizens."
Some of the local organizations waiting to hear back from Congressman Boucher include:
* Washington County Chamber of Commerce
* Virginia Tech Student Association
* Montgomery County & Washington County League of Women Voters
"These are not political groups; they are pillars of the community. If Rick Boucher is afraid to take questions from the League of Women Voters or the Chamber of Commerce, then he has no business claiming to represent them in Washington."
Wherever he is, he isn't here where he ought to be.
