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.
