A debate will be held at the Whelan School Auditorium between mayoral candidates Dan Rizzo and George Rotondo, according to statements issued last week from officials for both their campaigns.
The Revere Journal sponsored debate will take place on the evening of October 18 inside the auditorium of the Whelan School.
This agreement to debate follows months of wrangling between the two mayoral hopefuls.
As it is presently planned and agreed upon, seating will be available for 100 Rizzo supporters, 100 hundred Rotondo supporters and for an additional 100 voters who presumably have not yet decided whom they will be casting a vote for.
The debate will be moderated by Revere Journal editor Josh Resnek and will be broadcast on Revere Cable.
The candidates have agreed on a basic format, which will be described fully in advertisements to be run in the Journal prior to the debate.
The debate will run approximately two hours and will allow the candidates to directly question one another.
