Queensbury, NY, Sep 21, 2012 — It looks like voters in the North Country will get three more chances to see the congressional candidates meet face-to-face before election day. Republican Matt Doheny and Democrat Bill Owens have agreed to three debates, beginning Tuesday, Sept. 25.
The first will take place on the evening of Tuesday, Sept. 25, in an hour-long debate hosted by the Adirondack Chamber of Commerce that will focus on economic issues. The two men will also meet in October at forums in Plattsburgh and in Watertown.
Next Tuesday's debate at Queensbury High School will be the first to include third-party Green candidate Donald Hassig.
Next Tuesday's event is free and open to the public and begins at 8pm at the Queensbury High School. There will also be an hour-long debate that evening beginning at 7 in the 114th assembly race. Republican Dan Stec and Democrat Dennis Tarantino will face off for that forum.
