Copeland to join Commissioner debateWritten by Staff Reports | | email@example.com
City Councilman Phil Copeland has agreed to particpate in a debate with the candidates for Lucas County Commissioner.
Toledo Free Press will sponsor the political debate on April 10, between the five candidates vying for the Lucas County commissioner’s seat in November.
The primary election on May 2 will reduce the group of three Democrats and two Republicans to a head-to-head campaign between the two parties. The debate runs from 5:30 to 7 p.m. at the McMaster Center in the Downtown branch of the Toledo-Lucas County Public Library. Free parking is available.
Media partners in the debate are WSPD-1370 AM and FOX Toledo 36. Republican George Sarantou, elected for his fifth year on Toledo City Council last fall, faces Pam Haynam, a Sylvania School Board member, to decide the GOP candidate. For the Democrats, either attorney Ben Konop, Maumee Mayor Tim Wagener or Phil Copeland, Toledo councilman, will advance to the ticket.
In addition to live broadcast on WSPD, Lisa Renee Ward will post a live blog update from the debate.
