Letter to the Editor: Roskam’s constituents deserve a debate

Why is Congressman Peter Roskam afraid to engage with his opponent and his constituents? His challenger, Dr. Jay Kinzler, has formally invited him to a true debate where the candidates would publicly discuss the serious issues facing our country.

Mr. Roskam is a trained lawyer, while Dr. Kinzler is a surgeon and serves in our Army Reserve, treating active duty military patients. Dr. Kinzler is brave enough to continue the great political debate tradition of Illinois that this state witnessed in the Lincoln-Douglas debates of 1858.

Let’s hear the differences between these two men so we are informed voters. How about it Mr. Roskam?
