Budget cuts, economy focus of White Plains mayoral debate
The three candidates vying to be the next mayor of White Plains took to the stage last night in a News 12 special debate.
Acting Mayor Tom Roach is competing to keep his current post, while Independent Glen Hockley and Republican pro-football Hall of Famer Bob Hyland shared their own visions for the city.
The candidates stayed focused on budget cuts and the economy. All three agreed the city charter needs to be changed in the case of a problem mayor.
However, each runner did present different ideas on how to rein in taxes and on whether an industrial development agency should be granted in Albany to help bring in business locally.
Residents will hit the polls and choose the next mayor on March 31.
