The Equity hosted a debate for the first ever general-suffrage election of a Pontiac warden on Oct. 12 at Pontiac High School.
If the packed house was any indication, it seems that residents are intrigued with the chance to elect their warden for the first time and listen to the candidates.
The night started with each candidate giving a two-minute opening statement. The candidates were asked a total of seven questions throughout the night, which they had to respond to in 90 seconds.
After the candidates had answered each question, a rebuttal period was opened up to allow them to expand on their answers or respond to a fellow candidate.
After the question-and-answer session, each candidate had two minutes to sell themselves to the voters in attendance one last time.
