Pima County Attorney Barbara LaWall has so far refused 5 different invitations from 5 different community organizations offering to host an event. So far this election cycle, LaWall has refused to debate or even attend any forum with her Democratic primary opponent, Joel Feinman.
Five different community and political organizations have invited Ms. LaWall to appear in public with Mr. Feinman and answer questions about the Pima County justice system from the voters, and she has declined or ignored them all.
“It is sad that Ms. LaWall does not believe that she has a duty, as both a candidate and a 20 year elected official, to listen to the people of Pima County and publicly answer their questions and concerns,” said Feinman. “I will be happy to appear with Ms. LaWall at a time and place of her choosing, because I believe that open discussion and debate is the foundation of our democracy.”
Election day is August 30, 2016.
