The Strickland and Portman campaigns have excluded me from the three debates that they have arranged. This is a betrayal of Democracy. The people deserve to know that they have choices. Please contact these debate sponsors and ask that I'm included.

Bombard the sponsors of the debates with emails, phone calls, letters, and social media messages/posts.
Use the same tone and language as a letter to the editor. i.e. No foul language, ad hominem attacks, etc. However, please feel free to be forceful, make it very clear how unhappy we are with Joe’s exclusion, and present a solid reasoning for why he should be added.
Have your friends and family members get involved too. The more people we have taking action, the more likely we are to be successful.
This issue is not unique to the Green Party. It is important to everyone who believes in fairness, free speech, and democracy.
Feel free to also contact the Strickland and Portman campaigns directly.
