AD-38: Patricia McKeon Decides to Meet With REAL VOTERS and Refuses to Attend Debates or Forums

I guess Patricia McKeon will NOT show up to any more forums or debates in the Santa Clarita Valley.

Assembly candidate Patricia McKeon is not likely to speak at any more public forums in the Santa Clarita Valley, her campaign spokesman said Tuesday.

“I think we’re done with public forums,” Joe Justin said before a forum scheduled Tuesday evening by the League of Women Voters and the 34th District Parent-Teacher Association.

Her campaign strategy hinges now on meeting voters directly, he said.

“There are no undecided voters in this area,” Justin said, referring to the Santa Clarita Valley. “We’re now going to be talking to real voters.”

“We may do a forum in Simi Valley,” Justin said.

McKeon has appeared only once at a public forum with her Democrat opponent, Edward Headington, and in front of at least three Republican-only events.

McKeon, wife of Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Santa Clarita, told a luncheon forum at the Lincoln Club last month that she would not shy away from public debates and forums, but was not about to give the same talk to the same audience over and over.

McKeon, school board member Paul Strickland and college Trustee Scott Wilk are seeking the Republican nomination for 38th Assembly District in the June primary. The lone Democrat in the race is Headington.

McKeon did not attend the Tuesday night forum that drew Wilk, Strickland and Headington.

Well, based on Patricia’s previous performance, this is probably a smart move for her.

You know, limit the opportunity to make a continuing ass out of yourself. Like she did here in this video:

I don’t think the voters will take too kindly to a candidate who wants to avoid discussing their ideas and policy stances while her husband the local Congressman has his defense contractor cronies fund her mass mailings to voter’s mailboxes.

Come on, Patricia, 90 per cent of the race is just showing up…..right?
