Stage is set for Republican Commissioners Debate on News Talk 104.1

Republican candidates vying for a seat on the Lycoming County Board of Commissioners will voice their opinions on  “several big issues facing the county” during a formal debate slated for 7 p.m. tonight at the Clarke Chapel on the campus of Lycoming College.

All nine candidates have previously confirmed their intent to participate this evening. The candidates are John Bower, Stephen P. Brady, Gabriel J. Campana, Todd Lauer, Scott Metzger, Kathryn S. “Tabby” Nassberg, Chad Riley and incumbents Jack McKernan and Tony Mussare.

As previously reported, the debate format will include one-minute introductions followed by nine rounds of questions so each candidate will have the opportunity to lead off.

In between, there may be 30-second rebuttals at the direction of Todd Bartley, general manager of News Talk (104.1 & 1600 WEJS), who will serve as the moderator tonight.

The event will end with one-minute closing remarks.

Coverage on News Talk 104.1 & 1600 WEJS begins at 7 p.m. tonight.
