Miller deserved inclusion

-A A +A
By The Staff

Dear Editor,

KOB-TV Channel 4 excluded independent candidate Carol Miller from its 3rd Congressional District debate October 25, giving the fraudulent impression that only a Democrat and a Republican are seeking this office. In my view this action is an illegal limitation of the public’s right to be informed of and access all certified candidates. This is not Primary season; Miller is on the November ballot. What do FCC-licensed KOB and the two major parties have to say about this misrepresentation?

Until federal election law can assure public access to a wide range of candidates, I urge the N.M. Legislature to create an open June Primary using ranked-choice voting. For each office all party and non-aligned candidates would be reduced to two for November’s General Election. I also urge the Legislature to adopt equitable media rules, campaign spending caps, modest public financing for general election candidates and elimination of all political contributions except those by individual citizens.
