The presidential debates have certainly been gripping, but on Wednesay, we in East Greenwich get a chance to be part of our own Great Debate.
The debate will feature candidates Dawson Hodgson and Winters B. Hames for state Senate District 33 and candidates Kevin McDonough, Mark Schwager, and Anthony Giarrusso for state Representative District 30, at the Varnum Armory, starting at 6:30 p.m.
Mark Curtis will be moderating the House debate and I will be moderating the Senate debate. But we need your help – what issues do you want to hear the candidates address?
Are you concerned about pension reform? Do you want to hear how the candidates will try to improve the jobless rate in R.I.? Should the candidates talk about how to make the state more attractive to business? How do the candidates feel about passing same sex marriage legislation in the next session?
There are lots of possible questions. The best debate will be one with a wide variety.
If you have a question, either leave it here as a comment or send it to me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
