WEEKES OUT!

Gordon Weekes has bailed out of participating in the PDO Debate sponsored by FIU College of Law and the League of Women Voters.

After confirming his appearance on September 17th, Weekes this morning stated he is unavailable, citing a scheduling conflict.  He would not elaborate further.

This is surely disheartening news to the other candidates running for the Public Defender spot, and to his colleagues at the PDO who have already sent emails to secure tickets for the December 4th event.  Weekes is the only one of twelve confirmed candidates for both SAO and PDO to cancel an appearance.

To all those PDO employees who have reserved tickets, kindly email SAOPDODEBATETICKETS@GMAIL.COM if you no longer want to attend.  Interest has been high, and your tickets can be redistributed.  Otherwise, anyone else wishing to attend please finish getting your requests in.  You will not receive a confirmation email, but rest assured your requests have been appropriately logged.
