Tell Cuomo to Debate #MakeCuomoDebate

This petition had 307 supporters

After dodging debates for months, Andrew Cuomo, the “Democratic” New York Governor, coordinated a single gubernatorial debate with his Republican opponent and excluded the Libertarian, Green, and independent candidates on the ballot.

Despite calls for an “Upstate Debate”, and the League of Women Voters of New York State organizing an inclusive debate in Albany for November 1st, Governor Cuomo has not accepted the invitation to debate his four actual opponents on the ballot.

It is now up to the voters of New York to call on Governor Cuomo to do the right thing and show up for this important debate. While he may have a strong lead in the polls, if enough people express their outrage at his apparent disdain for the democratic process, he might be forced to change his mind.

At a time when voters are sick of all the corruption and disillusioned by the two-party duopoly, it’s important that the media provide fair coverage to the exciting third party and independent campaigns that are advancing solutions to status quo politics.

Tell Governor Cuomo to show some respect to New York voters and to the League of Women Voters of New York State, which is trying to thoroughly inform the electorate about ALL their choices.
