If you look below, we are doing the perfunctory request for money. But more importantly, the Lieber campaign is asking for just a little bit of your time. We are trying to engage Republican Ann Wagner in the League of Women Voters forum for candidates in the 2nd District. Ms. Wagner’s campaign has not accepted any of the dates proposed by the League nor has she offered any of her own. As of now, it appears that she will not be present at next Wednesday’s forum at Meramec Community College. But it’s not too late, the League will continue to welcome a positive response from her, even if she just walks in the evening of the forum.
If between now and next Wednesday you could give ten minutes and ten seconds of your time to try to get Ann Wagner to join Libertarian Bill Slantz and me at the League forum, that would be extremely helpful. This is not an easy task because we have found that the phone number for her campaign [(314) 952-4266] is not a working number. Hmmm. But if you contact the local or national media about how she is doing a terrible disservice to voters in her district as well as the whole essence of democracy, it could make a big difference.
The media seems to have deaf ears to almost anything about the campaign except money. Yet many outlets pontificate about how there is too much money in politics. Here is a chance for them to challenge a monied candidate to sit down in a friendly atmosphere to have an intelligent conversation about the issues. If you can, please give us 10:10 to try to wake up the media.
