You received a communication this morning from Erich Martel announcin a debate between President Saunders and myself to take place at McKinley HS today. Subsequently you received an "Alert" from Nathan Saunders indicating that no debate would be happening. It is true that because only one candidate was willing to debate, the debate will not happen. But let me correct factual errors in Mr. Saunders "Alert" email.
The debate was an initiative of the school WTU Representatives at Wilson and McKinley High Schools and Lafayette Elementary. They had reserved the space at McKinley. Mr. David Pinder’, the principal at McKinley, sent me the email below confirming use of the auditorium. The email is also copied to Mr. Bruce Stevens, his head custodian. No one ever represented the debate as being formerly sponsored by the WTU leadership, the election committee, or inappropriately used the WTU
logo. They had reached out to both candidates and thought the debate was on. It is also not true that private insurance must be posted to hold any and all meetings in school facilities. These are scare tactics are simply being used to inhibit the democratic process.
I am disappointed that in the end Mr. Saunders didn't see it as in his interest to come to the debate. I hope that in the future we can rise above political gamesmanship and make debates a regular feature of WTU elections. The members and the health of our union demand it.
Please don't forget to vote. Vote for the Elizabeth Davis slate. The WTU can be better!
Elizabeth Davis, Candidate for President of the WTU

Times are changing, says Washington DC special education teacher Maria Angala and she says the diversity that’s fueled much of the growth in places like the nation’s capital should be reflected in their workers unions as well.
