Posted: Updated:

Mayor Sam Jones and Sandy Stimpson went head-to-head for a second time Tuesday night.

The two faced of in another mayoral debate, this time at the Alabama School of Math and Science.

Topics included crime, finances and quality of life. But one there was one thing both candidates seemed to agree on; this election will come down to how voters feel about Sam Jones' record.

"There is a process, there is a lot of value in experience and continuity especially where we stand right now so I think that is one of the key things that we have to have to move forward," said Jones.

"He is running on his record, I am running because of his record, if his record didn't have blemishes and opportunities I wouldn't run. But I am running because when I look at what happened with Carnival cruise line, we fumbled the ball there, so what is to keep us from fumbling the ball with Airbus?," said Stimpson.

 Close to 1,000 people showed up to listen to the debate. Election day is set for August 27.
