Yankton, SD – Jay Williams, South Dakota’s Democratic U.S. Senate candidate will be speaking to the Yankton Rotary Club this Tuesday, August 2 at the regular noon meeting. This is the first Rotary Club Mr. Williams will address during his campaign. Williams is asking all Rotary clubs in South Dakota to invite him to speak at their clubs. In past election years, there have been debates between the U.S. Senate candidates at the Mitchell Dakotafest. This year, no debate has been scheduled. Because Senator Thune has made appearances at several South Dakota Rotary Clubs during this election cycle, Mr. Williams is asking South Dakota Rotary Clubs to invite him to their meetings where he will speak and answer questions. In this way, Mr. Williams says he can have a virtual debate with Senator Thune by answering questions in the same forum only at different times. These “Rotary Debates” as Mr. Williams calls them will allow voters to see and compare the candidates’ views on the issues facing our nation. Mr. Williams would like to speak to every Rotary Club in South Dakota during the remaining 3 months of this campaign. He requests all South Dakota Rotary Clubs email him at firstname.lastname@example.org with dates and times of Rotary meetings so that he can schedule as many as possible. Mr. Williams is especially interested in addressing all of the clubs that Senator Thune has addressed this year.
Mr. Williams issued the following statement calling for the “Rotary Debates”:
“As a former Rotarian I have always admired the principles and projects Rotary Clubs all over the world have sponsored. I look forward to the opportunity to address Rotarians and their guests, to present them with my views on the issues and to answer their questions. There are real differences between Senator Thune, his party and me. If Senator Thune and I are unable to have a face-to-face debate, at least this virtual debate will give voters an opportunity to see and compare the candidates. Six years ago Senator Thune did not face an opponent in his election. This time, the people of South Dakota have a choice and I am determined to show voters the difference between Mr. Thune and me on issues. With the end of the Presidential Conventions, the campaign is in full swing and I am doing my very best to present the voters with my positions on issues like the Farm Bill and the Presidential election. I am eager to address all of the Rotary Clubs that Senator Thune has addressed, and I will speak to as many as I can.”
Although this call is specifically for Rotary Clubs, Mr. Williams welcomes the opportunity to address any and all service clubs and citizens groups who would be interested in having him speak to them.
