George Leing to Attend Club 20 Debate; Urges Rep. Jared Polis to be True to Debate Pledge

(BOULDER, CO) – George Leing today announced that he will participate in the CLUB 20 candidate debate on Saturday, September 6, 2014.

“I call on Jared Polis to be true to his word and participate in a meaningful discussion of ideas for the citizens of this district.  The citizens of Eagle, Summit and Grand counties face some of the highest healthcare premiums in the nation, thanks in large part to Obamacare.  They deserve a robust debate over the future of healthcare policy and other important issues,” said Leing.

Eagle County, Grand County, and Summit County are each represented by CLUB 20 and located wholly or partially within the Second Congressional District.

In a July 10th Facebook post (See Below), Polis responded to Leing’s call for a debates by saying, “I look forward to discussing the issues with you! … Someone (usually a non-profit or media outlet) needs to host the debate and put it on, but I usually try my best to accept all invitations! We haven't gotten any yet but I expect some soon and hopefully there will be several debates…” 

Now is the time for him to make good on his commitment.
