Peavey-Derr “Dares” Bieter To Debate

The following is a press release from the Peavey-Derr Campaign

Judy Peavey-Derr, candidate for Boise Mayor, was notified by Boise Chamber leaders that Mayor Dave Bieter has refused to debate Peavey-Derr in what has been a traditional debate in recent years. No clear excuse was given to the Chamber leadership.

“The Mayor will likely dodge me in every debate format he can until November 3 when voters will tell him it is time for him to retire,” Peavey-Derr said.

Peavey-Derr also challenged the Mayor to a debate on Kevin Miller’s morning radio program during an interview where she announced her candidacy for Boise Mayor. To date, there has been no response from the incumbent’s campaign.

“If he needs a written invitation, we’ll be happy to send it. He will likely refuse the debate because he doesn’t want voters to know his real record,” Peavey-Derr added.

Peavey-Derr said she will debate the Mayor in any format, in front of any audience and on any station between now and Election day.

  1. It is way passed time to ditch this so called mayor. He has been doing things with our tax money for years that should never been allowed. Good luck Judy.

  2. I trust both candidates will participate in the 10/21 debate… the one moderated by the esteemed Dave Frazier.

    Bold prediction, based on years of observation – the incumbents, including Bieter, will win by comfortable margins. Why? Because 20-odd percent of eligible voters will take the time to vote. The rest will stay home because of apathy, cynicism, ignorance, etc. That’s how it is, so I guess we deal with it.

    (A side note… Kevin Miller? Who can abide that guy? I’ve tried to listen, but can’t. He obviously esteems himself to be a commentator/pundit in the mold of Limbaugh or Hannity, but he doesn’t have the chops to pull it off. My opinion.)

    EDITOR NOTE–Based on messages from the neighborhood group, it appears Bieter has declined to participate. More later on that.
