Mayor James Sottile was the clear winner at the Chamber debate that took place this morning. Answering questions from crime to economic development, it was clear that Sottile brought his A game. All candidates did well, I was particularly impressed with Lisa Cutten, which further boggles my mind to why she would risk a career in public service at a no shot election bid. Rich Cahill talked about his tax plan and the crime issue but there was no real substance to what he had to say and I think that was pretty evident. If the roaring standing ovation that Mayor Sottile received is any indication to what people are feeling, then hiz Honor will breeze through this election which is now just 20 short days away.
UPDATE : I just went to Cahill's blog and it claims that he shined at today's debate and was the clear winner. Obviously Cahill was not at the same debate as everyone else. Politics aside, there is absolutely no way anyone could think Sottile lost this debate. Sottile schooled Cahill and Cutten on every single issue! Don't believe me, ask anyone who attended.
