There will be a debate among candidates for County Council District 1 on Sunday, July 11, 6pm-8pm.  Five candidates are running to replace our term limited incumbent Tom Dernoga.  The doors will open at 5:30 pm at which time we will have note cards and be taking questions from the audience for the candidates. 

This debate will include opening statements from each candidate, questions delivered by a moderator, and closing statements during which candidates will be given an opportunity to give their final pitch.  College Park Mayor, Andrew Fellows will moderate the debate.

We will be providing candidates with the first two questions a week ahead of the debate. Six additional questions will be selected from the written questions submitted by the audience prior to the debate.  This debate will be focused on College Park issues and be open primarily for North College Park residents. 

Location: Davis Hall, 9217 51st Avenue

Hosts: College Park District One (Christine Nagle and Patrick Wojahn) & College Park District Four (Denise Mitchell and Marcus Afzali)
