I have just received word that due to ‘scheduling constraints’ there will be no debate between national chair candidates.
Those of you around in 1998 will recall that the chair debate was decisive in determining who was the next national chair — with disastrous consequences for our party.
We have had debates at every event since. The lack of a debate should be seen for what it is, namely an attempt by various factions to rig the outcome in favor of their candidate.
