Now that we are down to two mayoral candidates, can we please get some more debates scheduled so the general public can learn more about the platforms of the candidates?
I only know of one forum with mayoral candidates Chuck Horton and Emily Larson. It’s set for 8 a.m., Oct. 13, at the Underground Theater in the Depot and is being sponsored by the Chamber and the News Tribune. Can there be more?
Horton seems to feel more would be better. “You put me and her in a forum or a debate together, and I’ll close that gap so quick,” he said in the Sept. 16 News Tribune, referring to the 19 percent of the vote he received in the primary to Larson’s 67 percent.
I think both candidates owe it to the city of Duluth to give us a few debates so we can all judge for ourselves who should be the next mayor of this city.
