Second Debate, How Did It Go?

The second first selectman’s debate at High Plains Community Center on Thursday attracted a smaller in-person audience, but perhaps the online and cable viewing audience was larger.

The format was different, and the event was scheduled to last 90 minutes longer than the first debate with a break in the middle and audience questions.

If you listened closely, the two candidates often shared the same opinion on some items, and on occasion one candidate or the other received strong applause for his response, at other times there was silence.

I urge residents who did not attend or watch the debate live to catch up on what they had to say at HERE

There is one final debate, the annual Or Shalom Men’s Club Debate that will take place at Congregation Or Shalom, 205 Old Grassy Hill Road, on Sunday, Oct. 24 at 7 p.m.
