The Paper of Wabash County and the Wabash County Chamber of Commerce are sponsoring a mayoral debate on April 16 at the Wabash County Historical Museum.

The debate will begin at 7 p.m.

All three mayoral candidates – Democrats Bob Mullett and Margaret “Boo” Salb and Republican Scott Long – have agreed to participate in the event.

The public is invited to watch the debate in person, or view it live on The Paper’s WebTV. The Paper also plans to replay the debate on WebTV several times before the May 5 primary election.

“We believe that this event will give the people of Wabash a chance to hear for themselves what the candidates believe on a variety of subjects,” said Mike Rees, General Manager of The Paper of Wabash. “It also will give the public a chance to see the candidates think on their feet.”
