Campaign notes: District 5 Debate challenge

In the race for the District 5 seat on the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors, Tracy Planning Commissioner Rhodesia Ransom today sent out a press release challenging Tracy City Councilman Bob Elliott to three debates in the weeks left before Election Day on Nov. 6.

Here’s the release:

  Rhodesia Ransom, candidate for the county District 5 Supervisor seat, challenged her opponent
to three debates in the District Five communities of Tracy, Manteca, and Mountain House, all in
the month of October.
In a September 28th letter to her opponent, Republican Bob Elliott, she said, “This election will
obviously not be determined by rumor-mongering, smears (third party or otherwise) or
popularity. Voters are looking to make informed decisions about the position of the candidates.
To that end, I would like to invite you to participate in three formal debates in each city of the
district. You and I will both have an opportunity to answer the concerns of District 5
residents.”
Ransom, the co-chair of the Tracy Planning Commission, who is endorsed by a broad range of
public safety organizations said, “I look forward to debating Bob Elliott in an open forum, and
letting the people of District Five decide if the way the county has been run for the last half
century is what they really want.”
At the time of this press release, Elliott had not responded to the Ransom campaign.
