City mayoral candidates participate in live debate (video)


Last 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
  • 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.
