Mayor Candidates Brace for next Debate

Mayor Candidates Brace for next Debate

Posted: Updated:

This is the home stretch, the last chance for candidates to get to voters. With three weeks left until election day political hopeful's rubbed elbows with business leaders Tuesday.

Candidates from several races were at the Pork and Politics Mixer hosted by the Chamber of Commerce, but focus in mobile lately has been on what is becoming a very heated mayor's race.

"We feel like we are exactly where we are supposed to be and we are on the pathway to win.," said candidate Sandy Stimpson.

Things will get turned up a notch when the candidates face off in their third and final debate. The first to be broadcast coming exclusively on News 5.

"I think it is very significant obviously when you have a TV audience instead of 900 people or 400 people it just changes the whole game so it will be the most important debate because we can get our message out to so many people," said Stimpson.

"I like the questions because it is not something I need to study or something I need paper for, it is something I have lived. And I am very comfortable with them," said Mayor Sam Jones.

The third candidate, Dr. Doris Brown is also scheduled to attend the debate, something she is looking forward to because it's been difficult getting her message out.

"I got in it to win it because I saw that things were not going in the right direction. I am not greedy and I am not selfish. I want to see good things," said Dr. Brown.
