Manchester Mayor Ted Gatsas and mayoral candidate Joyce Craig will face off Wednesday morning for the first time in front of a live audience.
The debate is at the Puritan Conference Center in Manchester. The conversation will be centered on business issues, with questions fielded from the audience.
The Greater Manchester Chamber of Commerce is running the event. WMUR’s Adam Sexton will be the moderator.
Gatsas, who’s seeking a fifth term, defeated Craig, a Democrat and former alderman, by a mere 64 votes back in 2015.
The two candidates will debate again Nov. 2 on NHPR’s The Exchange.
