Kay Pirello from the Carla Howell team has asked for assistance from all and sundry:
NECN informed us that, although WPI invited Carla Howell to be in the gubernatorial debate on October 1st, and although she accepted their invitation, the media consortium covering the debate is now waffling and claiming the decision is up in the air.
Please contact the below people at the bottom of this email ASAP and urge them to stand by WPI’s ecision to include Carla Howell.
Below is a copy of the letter Carla Howell faxed to each of them earlier today.
If they exclude Carla Howell from this debate it will cause Carla Howell for Governor and Carla owell’s Ballot Question 1 grave damages.
Please CALL RIGHT NOW to URGE them to include Carla Howell!
Then any you can’t reach, please email your own personal message to them.
You might want to tell them you read it on a weblog based in Belfast, Northern Ireland – the following being Boston media and all!
Here is a list of the media consortium, the people who are involved in this decision, and their contact info:
Channel 5 – WCVB
Channel 7 – WHDH
Ro Dooley, Director of Public Relations
(has no email)
Channel 4 – WBZ

Channel 2 – WGBH
