The Independence Party is sponsoring a debate on Friday, June 14, between the candidates in the upcoming Democratic primary for Finance Commissioner. Both challenger Patty Morrison and current Commissioner of Finance Michele Madigan were invited to attend. At this point only Commissioner Madigan has accepted the invitation.
The Independence Party has endorsed Commissioner Madigan but to ensure fairness has enlisted Chad Beatty, publisher/editor of Saratoga Today, to moderate. The event will take place regardless of how many candidates choose to attend.
The event will take place at the Saratoga Casino Hotel Riley’s/Arrowhead Meeting Room on Friday, June 14. Doors Open at 6:30pm, debate 7PM-8PM.
Previous attempts by the Saratoga County League of Women Voters to organize a debate between the two candidates were unsuccessful.
