Day #22: Andy Kim is Still Hiding

MOORESTOWN, NJ — Local businessowner and candidate for Congress Bob Healey today issued the following statement:

On his campaign website, Andy Kim promises “…to commit to holding at least one town hall every month. I commit to providing daily reports on what I am working on, who I am meeting with, and how I plan to vote.”

(Andy Kim for Congress website, “My Promise to You”, https://www.andykim.com/my-promise.)

On June 7th primary night, I challenged the incumbent congressman to undertake an issue-based campaign that involved a series of town hall style debates, which would seem to be a perfect fit for his public promise.

Over three weeks have passed. It is now day #22 and Andy Kim has still not responded. 

Why is Andy Kim afraid of a respectful exchange of ideas in a public forum? Why does a clearly intelligent and accomplished man, like Congressman Kim, feel the need to be so choreographed and protected by his staff?

Today, I re-issue this challenge, respectfully asking our current representative to recognize that part of his job is explaining his views in a transparent, open meeting – and stress-testing those views in the face of someone who disagrees and is willing to challenge him.”
