Cornwall mayoral candidates debate tonight

CORNWALL – The four candidates for mayor of Cornwall will square off tonight in a televised debate.

Bernadette Clement, David Murphy, Leslie O’Shaughnessy and Nicole Spahich are scheduled to take part in the Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce event.

The candidates will take questions from a media panel with representatives from Cornwall Newswatch, Seaway News, Standard-Freeholder and the chamber. It will then be followed by questions from the audience.

The debate starts at 7 p.m. at the Cornwall Civic Complex.

Because of the large number of councillor candidates (30 as of Wednesday), there won’t be a councillor debate. However, they will be at the complex starting at 5 p.m. for a meet and greet with the public.
