JOE KNILANS has resurfaced! Where in the world WAS Joe Knilans? Rest of the story? The Janesville League of Women Voters announced that the debate originally scheduled on October 2 which Joe Knilans cancelled with an announcement of 1 or more campaign-related events through his campaign manager will be held next MONDAY, OCTOBER 15 - THE IDES OF OCTOBER (Beware!) - at 7:30 pm! GOOD NEWS for WE THE PEOPLE of the 44th Assembly District!

For more follow-up information, read Catherine W. Idzerda's article, "Knilans-Kolste debate rescheduled" published on page 3A of today's (10/10/2012) Janesville Gazette. (I am NOT allowed to provide a link.)

Be sure to note that the arrangement is the SAME as had been set-up for the cancelled forum on Oct. 2. CO-SPONSORS are the Janesville League of Women Voters, FORWARD JANESVILLE (Alert to those who commented about political identities of co-sponsors!) and JATV. The debate will be in the PROGRAM ROOM of the Janesville Hedberg Public Library.

I am among those who still want to know "THE REST OF THE STORY," JOE? What was really the reason for the cancellation of the October 2 debate date which your campaign had confirmed in August?

I asserted that YOU needed to clarify the situation in my WE THE PEOPLE blog post on October 4, "Where in the world is JOE KNILANS?"

YOU REALLY do NEED to provide information to clarify the clearly confused response of your campaign manager Tyler Wenzlaff which was reported by Jim Leute in his article, "Knilans camp mum on debate details" published on front page of the Janesville Gazette on Tuesday, October 2, 2012. WHY did Tyler or you not call back, as promised by Tyler, to clarify the situation, Joe? Come on, as an elected state rep, YOU are responsible to your constituents! So, what is the rest of the story, Joe Knilans?

I do hope that this NO SHOW disease is NOT contagious to infect US House District #1 Rep. Paul Ryan! So far as I have heard this morning, the Vice-presidential Debate is still GO tomorrow night! Hopeful and optimistic!

Now to watch for the debates between DEB KOLSTE and YOU, JOE KNILANS both on Monday, October 15 @7:30 pm and on WCLO Radio's "YOUR TALK SHOW" (1230 am) on Monday, October 29 @10 am.

Here we go...

Mr. E.
