The three Wabash mayoral candidates squared off Wednesday night, Oct. 7, in the only formal debate featuring all three candidates.
Approximately 125 people watched in person as the candidates – Republican Scott Long, Democrat Margaret “Boo” Salb and Independent Wade Weaver – answered 19 questions that were either submitted by the public or prepared by the staff of The Paper of Wabash County. 
In addition to those in attendance at the Historic Eagles Theatre, about 175 people watched the debate streaming live on Wabash WebTV and, as of Monday morning, another 355 have watched the debate on the WebTV archive.
