1st Congressional District Candidates to Debate at SU

SALISBURY, MD---The three candidates running for the House of Representatives in Maryland’s 1st Congressional District—Andy Harris, Frank Kratovil and Richard Davis—hold their first major debate on the Eastern Shore 7 p.m. Tuesday, September 30, in Salisbury University’s Holloway Hall Auditorium.

Dr. Andy Harris, a Republican, is a member of the Maryland General Assembly, representing the 7th Legislative District that includes parts of Baltimore and Harford counties, and is the only physician in the Senate. Frank Kratovil, a Democrat, is serving his second term as state’s attorney for Queen Anne’s County.  Dr. Richard James Davis, a Libertarian, is a dentist in private practice in Hurlock, MD.

“It is a great opportunity to be able to bring these three candidates to Salisbury University,” said Dr. Creston Long, co-director of SU’s Institute for Public Affairs and Civic Engagement and associate professor of history. “This debate gives the campus and the community a rare chance to see the candidates side by side and to compare their positions on important issues.”

Public Radio Delmarva’s news director, Don Rush, moderates the event. The debate will be recorded for re-broadcast by PAC 14.

Sponsored by PACE, the forum is free and the public is invited. For more information call 410-677-5045 or visit the SU Web site at www.salisbury.edu.
