The Jonathan Royce Esteban Congressional Project started this petition to Nevada's 4th Congressional District and

Nevadans deserve to hear from their candidates. The one thing the media, as well as both Republicans and Democrats agree on by debate time is: its in their best interest to keep independents and alternative choice candidates off the debate stage. Will you add your signature to help us OPEN THE DEBATES?

 

My written request to the candidates of Nevada’s 4th Congressional District (mailed 3 December 2019):

“I am honored to enter a diverse and competitive race to represent Nevada’s most sprawling district with you. The people of our district have spoken in many parts — they want an open, fair, and diverse debate.

As you may be aware, televised debates are often set with requirements designed explicitly to exclude independent and alternative choice candidates, like myself. This hurts our democracy — making fundraising numbers the entry point to the ballot. Rather, the opportunity to meet at the debate stage provides more clarity and confidence to the undecided voter, a once forgotten yet pivotal demographic in a decisive 2020.

Please consider my offer to debate candidates beyond party lines. More than online challenges, I’m eager to discuss and debate policy with you. Let’s work out a competitive debate stage for our constituents, soon — they deserve it.

Will you join me in a debate? I look forward to your response.

 

Respectfully yours,

 

Jonathan Royce Esteban
