Letter to Mark Green August 20th, 2018:
Congratulations on your nomination.
In the spirit of transparency and a healthy democratic process, the people of our district deserve to hear us debate about the issues facing our country and our communities in an open forum, face to face. This is the first time the seat has been open in 16 years, and the first time since 2002 there’s even been a competitive race, so hearing from us both is particularly important in this moment.
With that in mind, I hope you’ll join me in agreeing to a series of three debates in the days leading up to this November 6 election, in three mutually agreed upon locations throughout the district – including Williamson and Montgomery Counties – with mutually agreed upon moderators, sponsored by respected publications or universities.
If you’re in agreement that this is something we need to do, I’ll have my team reach out to yours to figure out dates and specifics.
Democratic nominee for U.S. House of Representatives
Tennessee’s 7th District”
