The Mayor Will Not Debate

Although there was some misinformation floating about late last week that Mayor William Hallenbeck had agreed to debate his challenger, Victor Mendolia, the Register-Star reports today that he has declined to participate: "Hallenbeck nixes Hudson mayoral debate." Hallenbeck's principal reason for refusing is that he is too busy running the city to prepare for a debate, but he offers a few more excuses, among them: he never got a "formal invitation" to debate from Mendolia; since WGXC was involved and Mendolia did a radio show on WGXC (on hiatus now because of the election), the debate might not be handled fairly; nobody else in the county is doing a debate. 

Mendolia's response, entitled "No Vision, Empty Promises, No Debate About It" and accompanied by this image, can be read here.
