Edison Mayoral Debate - October 24, 2013!?!

Well, looks like there's going to be a debate next Thursday at 7:00PM at Edison High School. According to the flyer, it's sponsored by the Edison Chamber of Commerce in cooperation with the Edison School District and moderated by, Deborah Macmillan - League of Women Voters of New Jersey.

It's open to the Public and Pre-event questions are welcome - Email

Confirmed candidates:
  1. Gaetano V. Gaspari (Republican)
  2. Thomas Lankey (Democrat)
  3. Mayor Antonia Ricigliano (Ricigliano 2013)
  4. Sudhanshu Prasad (Your Independent Voice)

The debate runs from 7:00 - 8:00PM and there's a Meet & Mingle with the Candidates from 8:00 - 8:30PM.

Now, I'm happy to see they're going to debate and to hear their views & plans to deal with both the problems & opportunities facing our town. Certainly, there are both.

However, herein lies the concern - with only a one hour debate with four candidates participating, that leaves only 15 minutes for each candidate to make his case and answer questions along with opening & closing remarks!

Just doesn't seem like there's ample time for them to get to their positions and plans on the substantive issues. I hope I'm wrong and that this isn't going to be just another 'Live' campaign flyer.

Anyhoo, you should attend if you can.
