The Oneonta and Cooperstown LWV Chapters collaborated in organizing a set of
19th Congressional District Primary Debates at the Foothills Performing Arts Center in Oneonta on June 8. The primary candidates are vying to fill the seat vacated by the resignation of Representative Chris Gibson. It is widely thought that after the primary elections on June 28th the general election will be hotly contested in this sprawling, competitive district. The Republican candidates were John Faso and Andrew Heaney. The Democratic candidates were Zephyr Teachout and Will Yandik.
The debates were civil and informative. Barbara Hein from the Oneonta area chapter was moderator for the Republican debate. The Democratic debate was moderated by Stephanie Bauer of the Cooperstown area chapter. Candidates responded to questions that were submitted by members of the audience and a media panel. Altogether as many as 300 attended the debates which were also broadcast and made available to an even wider audience through the local LWV website and SUNY Oneonta. They are accessed at the link above.
