Lower Township Councilman Tom Conrad today challenged opponent Janet Pitts to debate on neutral turf. Pitts has proposed a debate hosted by the Lower Township Taxpayers Association. Pitts is the former President of the group.
“Pitts’ proposal was a dog and pony show designed to grab a headline when I refused to let her own group host a debate,” said Conrad. “Let’s connect the dots: Pitts is the former President of the Lower Township Taxpayers Association. Now she is running against me and she wants that group to host a debate. Please. The voters see right through this ploy. She designed this to fail so she could cause a media stir.
“The fact of the matter is,” Conrad continued. “I am ready to debate Pitts anytime and anywhere as long as the debate is hosted by a neutral third party and not Pitts’ own special interest group. Until she makes up her mind that she wants an impartial and fair debate format, I will continue to take my message of smaller, more responsive government directly into the living rooms of the voters of Ward One.”
