Paducah's 'Great Debate' Set for Tonight
By West Kentucky Star Staff
PADUCAH - All of the candidates for Paducah city commissioner will have the chance to share their viewpoints and debate each other at an upcoming event, and answer questions submitted from the public. 

The Great Debate of Paducah, the first ever debate solely for city commissioner candidates, is scheduled for 6 pm Thursday on the Paducah campus of Murray State University.

All eight candidates for city commissioner - incumbents Sandra Wilson, Sarah Stewart-Holland and Richard Abraham, along with challengers Raynarldo Henderson, Scott Jackson, Brenda McElroy, Mike Reed, and Gerald Watkins, will attend.

Organizers hope voters who love Paducah and care about who makes decisions regarding city services, taxes, laws and governance will attend so they can be informed voters in November.

Students from local debate teams, including Paducah Tilghman High School, will be timekeepers for the event. Stephanie Martinez from WPSD will moderate the debate. NewsTalk 94.3 WKYX will broadcast the debate live.

Murray State University's Paducah Campus is at 4430 Sunset Avenue.
