WATERFORD - Lori Hopkins-Cavanagh, founder of American Liberty Center and radio host of the Lori on Liberty Show will host a live, two-hour debate for Connecticut's 37th and 38th District Seats at Langley’s Restaurant at the Great Neck Country Club on October 23 from 1-3 pm. The candidates attending from East Lyme and Salem are Republican Holly Cheeseman and Democrat Beth Hogan. The candidates attending from Waterford and Montville are incumbent Republican Representative Kathleen McCarty, Democrat Sharon Palmer and Green Party candidate Lauren Shaw.
The debate format includes a ten-minute, one-on-one interview with each candidate, followed by questions taken from the audience. Each candidate will have one minute to answer each question. Presented by WJJF 94.9 FM radio, the debate broadcasts live, streams live, and will be available to run on cable access.
“The inner city debate that American Liberty Center hosted last month for the 39th and 41st Districts at the New London Library drew a standing room only crowd, indicating a strong demand from voters to interact directly with the candidates. American Liberty Center is playing an important role in helping voters make up their minds and understand issues critical to their community,” said Lori Hopkins-Cavanagh. “Residents can meet these candidates in person, hear their positions and understand their core values before heading to the polls and sending them to Hartford.”
