As a result of Mr Buck’s story, thecandidatesare onboard and ABC media personality Aaron Kearney has expressed interest as the chair.
“We’re still looking for a venue (preferably one without alcohol) and I’maiming for Monday or Tuesday next weekat 6pm as the date for the event,” Mr Buck said.
“The whole event has been set up electronically and all candidates were contacted late Wednesday evening.
“I’m waiting for candidates to confirm venue, date and time.
“Community wise, the interest is growing, with questions being forwarded for consideration.”
Mr Buck said the number of “likes” on his Facebook page (Maitland Mayoral Candidate’s Great Debate 2017) about the candidates’ forum is constantly growing.
“Properly communicated, I expect a decent turnout with the answers published in The Mercury after the event,” Mr Buck said.
