Dear Sheriff White,

Thank you for agreeing to our debate for the First Congressional District. Unfortunately, your opponent Councilor Martin Heinrich has declined our invitation. As a result, we will not be able to move forward at this time and must cancel the debate we had hoped to tape on Oct. 17th.

AARP has been proud to have hosted debates in the First Congressional District, with all candidates attending, every two years since 1998 and we regret that AARP will not be able to continue that tradition for the 2008 election.

We look forward to working with you in your future endeavors whether they be here in New Mexico or certain events lead you to Washington, D.C.

If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to have your staff contact Beth Velasquez, AARP New Mexico associate state director at 505-946-3605.


Stan Cooper,
AARP New Mexico State Director
