  1. S H A M E on KOCE!!! Cecilia Iglesias, a 3rd Official Candidate and is being EXCLUDED in this debate at Loretta's request!!!! I cannot believe KOCE would accept this request and DISCRIMINATE Cecilia. They are doing an injustice to All the District 47 voters. Us voters have a right to know where ALL the candidates stand. I and many other KOCE viewers have vowed to STOP watching this station and have lost our financial support!
