Incumbent Republican Assemblywoman Janet Duprey is seeking a 4th term in the New York State Assembly. She faces a challenge from 2 opponents in November in the newly redrawn 115th Assembly District that covers all of Clinton and Franklin Counties and 4 towns in St. Lawrence County in Northern New York. Conservative Party candidate Karen Bisso, a teacher at Plattsburgh High School, and Democrat Tim Carpenter, a Plattsburgh City Councilor, are both challenging Duprey.
All three candidates will be at the studios in Plattsburgh at 11:00 am on Monday, October 8th for a debate. Mountain Lake PBS is teaming up with the League of Women Voters to hold the candidates forum. The PBS Vote 2012 Special will air at 8pm, and be moderated by Mountain Lake Journal Anchor and Host Thom Hallock, with questions coming from a panel of journalists and a member of the League of Women Voters.
Joe Lotemplio with the Plattsburgh Press Republican and Pat Bradley from public radio station WAMC will be the panelists.
