Register candidate debates open to public online
The first Erie County commissioner debate is at 7 p.m. this Wednesday with incumbent Democratic county commissioner Pat Shenigo and his Republican opponent Jude Hammond.
The second commissioner debate -- the four-man race pitting six-term incumbent Democrat Tom Ferrell Jr. against independents Brad Hartung and Dick Brady and Republican Steve Kraus -- is at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 30.
There is no audience in the studio at the Register, but both debates are being shown live in real time at sanduskyregister.com. Viewers can submit their questions for the candidates in the interactive chatroom.
Erie County Juvenile judge Robert DeLamatre and his opponent debated Oct. 17, and that debate is available for demand viewing here.
