Because Koch did not respond to the video challenge, Joel Francis traveled to Wichita to deliver the debate challenge letter in person. Francis was prevented from entering the building after requesting to see Koch in person. He handed the debate challenge letter to Larry Moorman, Director of Corporate Security, who assured Francis that Mr. Koch would receive the letter today. Before leaving, Francis called Koch Industries' and was connected to Kay, Mr Koch's secretary. Kay said that Charles Koch was unavailable and then took Joel's name and phone number and assured him that Charles would get back to him.
It seems that Mr. Koch does not have the courage to respond to a college student and U.S. Marine Corps veteran worried about the negative impact Prop 23 would have on our state.

"As a senior, I'm worried that the dirty energy initiative Mr. Koch is funding would jeopardize $10 billion of private investment in the state's clean economy and ruin the fastest growing sector of Californian economy. Many of us who are getting ready to enter the workforce are looking to the clean technology sector as a strong employment option," Francis said. "If Mr. Koch is going to come into our state with his money, a lot of people would like to hear directly from him why he is trying to wreak our economy's development."
