Davis and his fear of Greens

To the Editor: 


In this election, only Gov. Gray Davis is hiding from the voters. Every other Democrat running for statewide office has agreed to debate all candidates running against them. As Green Party candidate for insurance commissioner, I debated my Democrat, Republican and Libertarian opponents on Bill Rosendahl's television show Sept. 17. Being willing to debate has nothing to do with what party you're from. Being willing to debate speaks to whether or not you respect the democratic process and the voters of California. A recent poll showed 69 percent of California voters want Peter Camejo in debates with Bill Simon and Davis. Davis's refusal to debate shows he has nothing but contempt for California voters.
