Lynch and Segal's Joint Parry

Interesting joint press release from Congressional candidates Bill Lynch and David Segal, who appear to be ganging up on frontrunner David Cicilline, here, with a proposed debate that is sure to renew focus on Cicilline's refusal to appear on a WPRO radio debate since it was scheduled for nemesis and talk radion host Buddy Cianci's time slot:

Woonsocket, RI –  Bill Lynch and David Segal, candidates for the Democratic nomination in Rhode Island’s 1st Congressional District, today called on their opponents to join them for a debate in Woonsocket before the September 14th primary.

“We've debated throughout the East Bay and Providence, and are glad to have had the opportunity to have engaged with voters throughout those parts of the district,” said Segal.  “But we believe that northern Rhode Islanders ought not be neglected, and that their votes and opinions are as valuable as those of all other Rhode Islanders.  We ask that our opponents agree to meet us for a debate in Woonsocket.”

“The Blackstone Valley is the heart of the 1st Congressional District, and also the scene of some immense economic hardships. It is essential those of us running to represent the people of northern Rhode Island have the opportunity to discuss with voters our plans for getting our state working again,” said Lynch. “It would be an enormous disservice to constituents not to speak to the issues that matter here – unemployment, mortgage reform, access to capital for small businesses, among others. I look forward to meeting with my opponents in Woonsocket.”

Lynch and Segal announced they will hold a joint town hall meeting in Woonsocket prior to September 14th, regardless of their opponents' responses to the debate request.
