Taking a Stand: Last debate before Evansville mayoral election

Taking a Stand: Last debate before Evansville mayoral election

EVANSVILLE, IN (WFIE) - This Thursday is the last debate before the November 3 Evansville Mayoral Election.

Republican Lloyd Winnecke, Democratic Gail Riecken, and Independent candidate Steve Wozniak are scheduled to participate.

Our own Jackie Monroe will join fellow local journalist in questioning the candidates.

What makes this debate unique is that 14NEWS has teamed up with Eyewitness News, 44 News, WNIN, and the Evansville Courier & Press.

I think it's great that each of our companies has agreed to put competition aside for one night and come together to broadcast this debate as a service to the public.

This is a big decision. We are picking the person who will lead us the next four years.

14NEWS is proud to be part of this group debate because the stakes are so high for our community.

There will be several ways for you to watch Thursday's debate from 7pm-8:30pm.

WNIN-TV will air it live and also simulcast it on their radio station 88.3FM

14NEWS and Eyewitness will stream it live on their websites.

44 News will re-air the debate this Saturday at 4:30pm on Fox 44.

Additionally, a representative of the Courier & Press will field questions for candidates via Twitter. Anyone can submit questions for the debate by posting their question and including #evvdebate
