“Chameleon Chris” Jacobs Gives In, Agrees to April Debate *RELEASE*


After weeks of hiding, Jacobs caves and accepts debate on WVIB

HAMBURG, N.Y. – Nate McMurray will debate Chris Jacobs in one debate hosted by WVIB on April 7th. At the beginning of the month, McMurray challenged Jacobs to eight debates before the Special Election on April 28th, one in each of the counties that make up New York’s 27th Congressional District. Jacobs, who was born into wealth and has been recently criticized by his own party for his flip-flopping positions, finally gave in and agreed to the debates after more public pressure. McMurray hosted a well-attended Town Hall Friday night in Canandaigua due to Jacobs’ refusal to face McMurray in a debate there.

McMurray issued the following statement:

“I’m glad Chris realized that he can’t hide behind money forever, and I’m excited to debate him face to face because we’ve got a lot to talk about. Trump and the Washington Republicans are cutting Social Security and Medicare, farmers are still hurting from the tariffs, and the rule of law is under attack at the Department of Justice. Jacobs doesn’t have the independence to take a stand on these issues, so he’s going to have to answer for why he’s ready to hurt working families here and across the country. One debate isn’t enough, so I’m going to keep holding events in every county of this district and if Chris has the backbone, he can show up. I know the Buffalo News, WBEN, WNED, and others have also asked for debates. The people of NY-27 deserve an independent voice in Congress, not a chameleon who changes his allegiances as it suits him and is out of touch with the needs of the working people of our district.”

Ronald Edward Laude

The laudatory sports lover, Ronald Edward Laude, 83, of Corfu NY was born on April 20, 1936 to Edward and Viola (Eder) Laude with 2 brothers and 5 sisters. His legacy of praise and laughter will carry on through his lyrical lady love, Carmel Metzger, and his 6 children had with the late Dorothea Laude; Cindy (Dave) Baker, Larry Laude, Renee (Greg) Marek, Brad (Lynda) Laude, Ronette (Wade) Wolcott, Thomas (Amy) Laude, their ever-growing families, his sister Nancy Darling, and many nieces and nephews.

Ron lived life to the fullest until the morning of February 19, 2020. Born in Buffalo NY, from childhood on, Ron was a fierce competitor who loved the thrill of any game. Although he consistently played to win, he demonstrated true sportsmanship at every turn, always encouraging both teams to give it their all. If you’ve ever played on a team with or against Ron Laude or any one of his 6 children, 17 grandchildren or 12 great grandchildren – you knew him. He was the loudest, proudest man in the crowd at softball games, soccer, karate, field hockey, basketball, baseball, beauty pageants, graduations and more.

Ron served in the Army as a mail clerk and worked as a signalman maintainer at Conrail for over 25 years. He will be remembered by all for his enduring faith, particularly at Mogadore Chapel where he could be found every Sunday. He faithfully donated to St. Jude’s Hospital whenever he could and he completed the Ride for Roswell for many years in his 70s and 80s.

He bowled as often as possible with his lady love, Carmel, who he sang to every night without fail. He never missed a birthday and his musical spirit will live on as legend to all who knew him. Calling hours are scheduled for Monday, Feb 24 from 2-4 and 7-9 PM. Funeral services are Tuesday, Feb 25th at 11 AM at Ross Funeral Home,10 Eckerson Ave in Akron, NY.
