MAYORAL DEBATE - Question #1, it seemed simple...


**The only in-person mayoral debate held this election cycle was on Thursday, hosted by Saratoga Today Publishing and moderated by Chad Beatty and Thomas Dimopoulos.


3 out of 4 mayoral candidates participated, Robin Dalton (independent/Saratoga Stronger Together), Ron Kim (D) and Heidi West (R)**


Below you'll find the first question from Thursday's debate which on its face, seemed like a layup… but as you can see below, took a turn as soon as the candidates started answering.

The debate above was the only opportunity candidates had to engage or challenge their opponents this campaign season - instead we've had a lot of carefully worded speeches and questionnaires published, which really doesn't allow the public the opportunity to if the candidates are actually qualified, knowledge and prepared to handle the position they are running for.


That's why I URGE everyone to watch the entire debate if you can and get to know the candidates before you vote - regardless of who you support, an informed vote is always the best vote!
