The League of Women Voters has scheduled a debate for the candidates for East Hampton Town positions, as well as the Suffolk County Legislature, for Oct. 21.
LWV Voter Services co-chair Anne Marshall will moderate the debate between Suffolk County Legis. Jay Schneiderman, I-Montauk, and Republican candidate Christopher Nuzzi, followed by the four candidates running for two seats on the East Hampton Town Board, Democrats Kathee Burke-Gonzalez and Job Potter and Republicans Fred Overton and Councilman Dominick Stanzione.
The debate will take place at the Emergency Services Building in East Hampton at 7 p.m.
Candidates will make timed opening and closing statements and answer questions submitted by a panel of local media editors, as well as by the audience.
Larry Cantwell, who is running unopposed for East Hampton Town Supervisor, will introduce himself, but he won't take part in the debate. Candidates for other offices on the November ballot have also been invited to introduce themselves.
LTV will videotape the debate for later viewing on East Hampton Town’s Channel 20.
The League of Women Voters will also sponsor a debate between Schneiderman and Nuzzi, as well as candidates for positions in Southampton Town, on Oct. 24 at 7 p.m. That debate will be held at Rogers Memorial Library in Southampton.
