This debate was held on Tuesday, April 9 in the Hudson Reporter offices and included the participation of all four mayoral candidates – Mayor Jerramiah T. Healy, City Councilman Steven Fulop, Abdul Malik, and Team Walker founder Jerry Walker.
The candidates fielded seven questions regarding funding for anti-crime measures; gun control; when tax abatements should be phased out; ways to mitigate the impact of the property revaluation; concerns about the animal shelter; what to do with employees who may be laid off due to city services consolidation, and ways to improve the quality of life.
The candidates were given two minutes to answer each question and were allowed 30-second rebuttals.
Footage of the mayoral debate will remain online through Election Day, Tuesday, May 14.
