A Campaign to Get Bloomberg to Debate

The Working Families Party is enlisting help to put pressure on Michael Bloomberg for his refusal to accept an invitation to participate in a debate.
The WFP, one of the debate organizers, has launched an online petition saying the mayoral campaign is “already overloaded” with sound bites, and notes that Bloomberg’s two Democratic opponents have agreed to participate.
The debate, whose date and location have not been specified, is also being hosted by El Diario/La Prensa, one of the largest Spanish-language newspapers, and the Amsterdam News, one of the country’s oldest black newspapers.
The WFP’s statement included quotes from a number of current and former officials.
