Wellsville mayoral debate on for Thursday

WELLSVILLE — A debate between the three candidates for mayor of the village of Wellsville will take place on Thursday, Oct. 27 at the David A. Howe Library.
The debate will be held in the Nancy Howe auditorium at 6:30 p.m.
Taking part in the debate are incumbent Democrat Judy Lynch, Republican challenger Randy Shayler and independent candidate James Dorsette (Wellsville Citizens Council).
Moderating the debate will be John Anderson, regional editor of the Wellsville Daily Reporter and Neal Simon, city editor of the Hornell Evening Tribune.
Each candidate will get a three-minute opening statement from the moderators and questions from the audience.
"This is the most talked about election since there were three candidates for mayor in 1992," said Anderson. "There are a lot of issues and three solid candidates with different views. With most local elections, you throw party affiliation out the window and vote for the person who will represent you the best. This is another reason getting them together to hear why they want to run is important."
