Open letter to congressional candidate Steve Wells

Mr. Wells,
Political Donor Steve Wells
Since January 26, 2016, we have been consistently contacting you and your campaign in an effort to conduct an interview for the benefit of the public and constituents in the NY 22nd Congressional District that you seek to represent. To-date both you and your campaign have failed to make any response to our phone calls and emails.

We have thus far interviewed half of the candidates that have announced the intention to run for the NY-22 seat. We continue to pursue interviews with the remaining candidates, as transparency and timely answers to the questions and concerns of the constituents is vital to the process of the 2016 NY elections. It is a reflection of both the character and intent of the candidates, in our opinion.

Because of this importance to voters, because the issues that the NY-22 representative in Congress will be addressing issues that will affect this nation for decades to come, we believe that all candidates should be interviewed. But since all our prior private attempts over the last 99 days (the second longest period of silence by a candidate in the NY-22 race at this time) have gone without response, we now seek this public format.

Again we state that the format of the interview can be via phone or in-person video. We reiterate that all questions and every answer will be provided to the public WITHOUT edit – to ensure that you cannot be misunderstood and no miscommunication can occur. This is the standard that we provide to EVERY interview we have ever conducted.

As already stated, we are also reaching out to the other hold-out candidates for the same reason and purpose. Because we are the leading coverage of the NY 22nd congressional race (both in number of articles and depth of coverage) we feel that we are obligated to pursue this interview for the benefit of the public and to provide the most fair and complete coverage of all candidates in this race.

Mr. Wells, we again provide you our contact information – which is already public (which you must be aware of as you have sent us several promotional mailings as voters) – so that you can reach us to arrange for an interview. Phone: 607-242-9247, email:

We look forward to finally being in touch with you and your campaign on this critical matter for voters in the NY-22.
