For the first time this year, The River Reporter is using its website to stage election season debates. As we are exploring the format, we have decided to start with just one sample race for each side of the river: Tusten, NY and Damascus, PA.
Depending on interest, we may post debates for additional townships. If you are particularly interested in having an online River Reporter debate in your town, email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
