Bill Owens wife, Jane Owens, is on the executive staff of PBS in Plattsburgh the very orginization that is moderating the debate SUNY. Jane Owens, Director of Outreach and Education Mountain Lake PBS.

Ali, Eric, and I have been hearing all around the district that Doug Hoffman is ducking tomorrow nights debate with many questioning both his competency and others questioning his commitment. Amidst the rumor and speculation 73 wire has learned the most compelling argument for Hoffman to skip the debate is that Bill Owens wife, Jane Owens, is on the executive staff of PBS in Plattsburgh the very orginization that is moderating the debate SUNY.

If this is the reason the Hoffman camp is not attending, and we’re not saying it is, the next logical question is why the DeDe camp is not following suite?
Although walking into the the lions den is almost always a candidates job Plattsburgh is an Owens stronghold were most of his support and HQ are.
We think DeDe might be running headlong into a one sided debate without having all the facts… or could it be she might just feel at home there???
