115th Assembly District Debate - October 8, 2012
Incumbent Republican Assemblywoman Janet Duprey is seeking a 4th term in the New York State Assembly facing a challenge from 2 opponents in November in the newly redrawn 115th Assembly District that covers all of Clinton and Franklin Counties and 4 towns in St. Lawrence County in Northern New York. Conservative Party candidate Karen Bisso, a teacher at Plattsburgh High School, and Democrat Tim Carpenter, a Plattsburgh City Councilor, are both challenging Duprey.
All 3 joined us on Monday, October 8th for a debate in our studios. Mountain Lake PBS teamed up with the League of Women Voters to hold the candidates forum. The one-hour PBS Vote 2012 Special was moderated by Mountain Lake Journal Anchor and Host Thom Hallock, with questions coming from a panel of journalists and Betty Ann King of the League of Women Voters. Joe Lotemplio with the Plattsburgh Press Republican and Pat Bradley from public radio station WAMC were panelists.
