Community members are invited to join HYP for the Harrisburg Mayoral Debate on May 8, 2013 at The Hilton Harrisburg. The event will be broadcast live by abc27 from 7-8:30pm, and moderated by abc27's Dennis Owens. Participating candidates include Mayor Linda Thompson, City Controller Dan Miller, Lewis Butts, Nevin Mindlin and Eric Papenfuse.
Each candidate will be allotted equal time to answer questions and offer rebuttals. As this event is open to the public, the audience will also have the opportunity to pose questions to candidates by submitting them, via writing, during the first half of the debate. WHP 580's Lynne Richarde, Smart Talk WITF's Nell McCormack Abom, The Patriot-News' Robert Vickers, and Central Penn Business Journal's Hope Stephan will serve as panelists for the event.
Through this debate, HYP hopes to increase awareness of the opportunities, issues and challenges facing Harrisburg. Please join us on May 8 at The Hilton Harrisburg as we engage in the democratic process of selecting our city's leadership during a pivotal time in the city's, as well as the region's, history.
