All Delphi City Council candidates on the Nov ember Municipal Election ballot have agreed to debate their opponents Wednesday night, Oct. 2, beginning at 6:30 p.m. at the Delphi Community Center. The event will be hosted by the Carroll County Comet.

Debates will be held for Delphi City Districts 2, 3 and 4. Republican candidate Denny Myers will debate independent candidate Michael Isley for the Dist. 2 seat on the City Council. Republican Gayle Conner will debate Democrat candidate Randy Strasser and independent candidate

Anita Werling for the Dist. 3 seat and Republican Kevin Gaskill will debate independent candidate Sandy Flora for the Dist. 4 position. Each candidate in each debate will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and talk about why they are qualified for the position for which they are running before the questioning begins. Topicspecific questions will be directed to each candidate who will have adequate time to provide a substantial answer. The opponent(s) will be given the opportunity to respond to the answer provided by the candidate to whom the question was initially addressed.

Questions will be welcome from community members at the debate or they can pose questions themselves during the debate.

Delphi residents are urged to attend this event and ask questions which they believe are pertinent to the operation of the City.
