Harrietstown supervisor candidates Bob Bevilacqua and Tom Catillaz will answer a lot of questions at a debate Monday night. One of those questions could be yours.
There are several ways you can question the candidates prior to the Nov. 6 election.
1. Suggest a question to the debate panel. The two panelists for Monday's debate, Denton Publications Assistant Managing Editor Andy Flynn and Enterprise Senior Staff Writer Chris Knight, welcome your ideas as they draft their questions. You can suggest something to Mr. Knight at firstname.lastname@example.org or by dropping a written question off at the Enterprise office at 54 Broadway, Saranac Lake.
2. Suggest a question at the debate. The last segment of the face-off is set aside for questions from the audience. Paper and writing utensils will be set out, and during the early rounds you can hand your written question to Keith Lobdell of Denton Publications. Some of the audience questions will be selected during an intermission and then posed to the candidates.
3. Ask the candidates one-on-one. Expect both candidates to make themselves available after the roughly hour-long debate to talk to audience members. They're also making themselves available around town to talk and listen to people.
We think this will be a valuable debate, and we strongly encourage all Harrietstown residents to attend. There are about 5,700 of you, so let's see a strong turnout.
For those who can't make it to the event, it also will be broadcast on WNBZ-WIRD-AM radio, and the Enterprise plans to post video of the debate on our website the next day.
