Maybe the foreign affairs topic put a drag on the last presidential debate, but the issues will be local at 7 p.m. Wedenesday when incumbent county commissioner Pat Shenigo sits down with his opponent, Jude Hammond for the second of three county debates.

Hammond has ripped Shenigo for alleged mismanagement of the county. Shenigo has fired back, pointing to management letters with state audits of the Margaretta school district recommending tighter controls over school district finances.

Next week, Erie County incumbent commissioner Tom Ferrell Jr. debates his opponents, independents Brad Hartung and Dick Brady and Republican Steve Kraus at 7 p.m. Oct. 30
