"This is election season and the Temecula City Council incumbents have been missing in action," candidate Jamie R. White said in a news release Sunday.
"I am challenging City Council members Mike Naggar and Chuck Washington to a 1 on 2 debate."
White said that at the last city council meeting, she had to hear members of the Friends of the City Council "bash" her.
"So I would like an opportunity to debate the current city council and let the citizens of Temecula decide our fate."
Her news release goes on to state:
Temecula lies about $2.7 million surplus ... Naggar and the Successor Agency to the Temecula Redevelopment Agency is over $517,000 in Debt (State Controller Will Audit Temecula Within the Year and says that number will probably be much higher).
I, Jamie R. White challenge Mike and Chuck Washington to a debate 2 on 1. They can pick the location and they can pick the time. I will be there waiting. Last Wednesday night the Kiwanis invited us to a candidate forum. Again, City Council members Mike Naggar and Chuck Washington were no shows. What does it take for a 2nd debate in Temecula?
What does it take to give the citizens of Temecula the debate that they deserve?
I’m not speaking for any other candidate. I’m only speaking for myself. I’m challenging both Mike Naggar and Chuck Washington to a Debate.
Pick the location. Pick the time. Mike Naggar was the head of the Temecula Redevelopment Agency and continues to lie about the debt.
Next year the citizens of Temecula will realize that they have been lieing [sic] but it will be too late.
Mike Naggar is also for the quarry as long as Jeff Stone is in charge.
This is in his own words. I am calling on the people of Temecula to DEMAND a debate between myself and Mike Naggar and Chuck Washington so that I can have the opportunity to have them tell you the truth.
