Crickets from Bill Galvin who has taken the duck and dodge art form to new highs.
Crickets from the blogosphere where there has been nary a hue nor a cry for a debate of some sort. There was more noise in 2006, but for some reason there appears to be little outcry this year.
And, of course, crickets from the major media outlets be they papers, radio stations or television stations.
Galvin has two capable challengers in Bill Campbell and Henderson who deserve the opportunity to debate the incumbent at least once to provide the public an opportunity to see the differences between these 3 candidates and their views on this important office. I do not believe it is asking too much of a public servant to come before the people once every 4 years and explain why they deserve their job for another 4. Bill Galvin seems to disagree with me and considers an interview with his bosses (US!) a waste of his time.
I know he won’t listen to me, but it would be a shame if the media, pundits and political parties did not challenge our current Secretary of the Commonwealth to explain, in person, why he deserves the job for 4 more years.
