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.
