Candidates vying to be a Mecklenburg County commissioner or state Senator met Tuesday for three debates sponsored by the League of Women Voters.
The group fielded questions on topics that ranged from how to rein in government spending to what should be done to fight crime in the community.
The debates were filmed at the WTVI studios and are scheduled to air on the public television station, broadcast Channel 42, from 12:30 to 3:30 p.m. Sunday. Podcasts also will be available at www.wtvi.org and www.goleaguego.org.
Tuesday's debates featured the six candidates running for three at-large seats on the Board of County Commissioners, two candidates for the District 1 seat on the county board, and two competing for state Senate District 37.
The election is Nov. 4.
