Letter to Editor: Why not a radio debate in Tusten race?

The two candidates running for the one seat on the Tusten Town Board have such differing opinions and ideas on how to lead our township at a crucial time in the growth of Tusten, I suggest a radio debate sponsored by either WJFF or WVOS where similar questions are asked to the candidate’s opinions…

Two local laws will be up for public hearings before the Sullivan County Legislature next month, each dealing with the growing substance abuse problem of young people.
