Eight Bridgeport mayoral candidates face off in 'game show' debate

(08/27/03) BRIDGEPORT - The eight candidates for mayor of Bridgeport faced off in an atypical debate Wednesday night.

The event was described as a political debate with a game show twist. It had live music and a more relaxed atmosphere. People sat outside by the water to watch. As the sun went down, the heat got turned up on the candidates.

Each candidate had only one minute to answer certain questions. The questions were determined by a spin of the wheel in categories like health, money and the arts. Other questions came right from the audience. Candidates also addressed the need for change and trust in the mayor of the city of Bridgeport.

Wednesday night's event was sponsored by The Domino Effect.
