Local orgs try to put together Ithaca mayoral debate, but Acting Mayor Laura Lewis declines

It looks like voters in Ithaca will not see candidates for mayor challenge each other on the issues.

The Ithaca Voice reports that several efforts to get Acting Mayor and Democrat Laura Lewis, Republican Zachary Winn, and Independent Katie Sims in the same place for a debate has fallen through.


The trio are facing off to fill the remainder of Svante Myrick’s term. It runs until the end of 2023.

The Voice says they, along with WRFI attempted to organize a mayoral debate for October 25th, but Acting Mayor Lewis chose not to participate. She is said to have pulled out of another local debate as well organized by the Tompkins County Progressives.
