Gubernatorial candidates debate at Centre
RELEASED: October 29, 2007
The debate aired live on WKYT 27 and on WKYT's affiliates in Louisville, Bowling Green, Ky., Hazard, Ky., and Huntington, WV.
Bill Bryant, WKYT anchor, moderated the debate between Gov. Ernie Fletcher, Republican gubernatorial candidate, and Steve Beshear, Democratic gubernatorial candidate.
A panel asked the candidates questions during the hour-long event. Members of the panel were: Randy Yohe from WSAZ in Huntington; Gene Birk from WBKO in Bowling Green; Neil Middleton from WYMT in Hazard; Vicki Dortch from WLKY in Louisville; and student representative Jake Hill, a Centre senior from Owensboro, Ky. Hill is the editor of The Cento, Centre's student-produced newspaper.
Patrick Noltemeyer, who coordinated the on-campus efforts to host the event as part of his work as director of volunteer service and the Bonnor Program at Centre, says the gubernatorial debate is a great opportunity for the College.
