Are you ready for a Great Debate?
A one-hour debate between gubernatorial candidates Virg Bernero and Rick Snyder will air on live television statewide at 7 p.m. on Sunday, October 10.
The Center for Michigan and a coalition of 19 co-sponsors representing business, labor, education, and nonprofit groups are extremely pleased to bring this one-and-only 2010 gubernatorial debate to Michigan voters.
It will be broadcast live on public television stations and also offered statewide to commercial broadcasters for live broadcast. Check your local listings for availability. The debate video will remain available on the Center for Michigan’s web site and on MiVote.org beginning on Monday, October 11.
Moderators from the Detroit Free Press and Detroit News will question the candidates on three main themes during the debate: economic growth, education, and reform.
The debate will be filmed in-studio without a studio audience.
However, the Center for Michigan is eager to encourage wide public discussion of what you hear during the debate. Post your comments online on the Center for Michigan web site.
Or, host a Great Debates party including a post-debate discussion. We’ll help you pay for it!
Send a post-debate email of 500 words or less to email@example.com indicating how many people attended your party and detailing the conclusions and insights of your crowd. We will publish your thoughts in our online newsletter. The first 50 party hosts to take advantage of this offer will receive $20 to help offset the cost of your party supplies.
Credentialed members of the media may reserve space to watch the debate at the public broadcast studios in Wixom and have access to the candidates after the debate.
