Fiala and Akshar Debate in Vestal as Election Day Appraoches

Two local State Senate candidates meet in a debate with polls showing one holding a huge lead.

Public station WSKG's headquarters in Vestal played host. As we reported last night, a new poll shows that Fred Akshar's lead over Barbara Fiala has grown dramatically. tonight the two met up for a debate regardless.

No photography was allowed at the event event tonight. Fox 40 was there however.

Fiala said her priorities included jobs and cleaning up corruption in Albany. She says she will scream to get attention for the Southern Tier in Albany and get the funding needed.

Akshar also said jobs were a priority with him and that he sees the fight against heroin as another top concern.

Next Tuesday, you can join the Fox 40 team on My 8 at ten for local election coverage, including full results if needed. Why? If the World Series is still on it will be on Fox 40. So you can see us on the other channel with all of the election results you need.
