Watch the debates for City Mayor & Town Supervisor

X101 Always Classic is partnering with the Cortland Standard to bring you two debates for important local races in the community. Watch below.

On Thursday (October 14) night, two candidates joined a live debate and made their case on why they should become the next city of Cortland mayor.

Democrat Bruce Tytler and Republican Scott Steve explained their views on a variety of important topics to voters.

Some of the issues covered included:

  • Parker School project
  • Downtown Revitalization Initiative
  • City population loss
  • Long-term plans for Main Street

The event aired live from Cortland Junior-Senior High School on cable TV channel 17, with help from a student production crew.

It also streamed online and on the radio (WXHC-FM, 101.5).

Tytler and Steve are competing to succeed the city’s longest-ever serving mayor, Brian Tobin, who announced earlier this year that his current fifth 2-year term would be his last.

Early voting begins next Saturday (October 23) and lasts for nine days.

General Election Day is Tuesday, November 2.
