Akron Mayoral Debate
co-sponsored by
Akron Press Club, University of Akron Bliss Institute, & LWVAA

 Tuesday, October 13, 2015
 

The Democratic and Republican candidates facing off in the November election for Akron mayor will participate in a debate to be presented by the Akron Press Club on Tuesday, October 13, 2015, at the University of Akron's Quaker Station. 

The debate is co-sponsored by the League of Women Voters of the Akron Area and the University of Akron's Ray C. Bliss Institute of Applied Politics. 

The two candidates - Summit County Clerk of Courts Dan Horrigan and Akron attorney Eddie Sipplen - have agreed to the debate format. 

Each candidate will have 90 seconds to answer questions posed by a panel of journalists selected by the Akron Press Club. The other candidate will have 45 seconds each for rebuttal. The order of the questions will be determined by a coin toss. Each candidate will be asked the same number of questions. 

Members of the audience are asked to reserve their applause until the end of the debate. No campaigning will be allowed in the debate room, including but not limited to buttons, stickers, T-shirts or other printed material. The Press Club reserves the right to refuse anyone displaying such material admission to the debate room.
