We’ve had several requests to provide a series of videos from the second mayoral candidate debate held Thursday night inside Fayetteville City Hall, just as we did for the first debate of the election season.
The event, sponsored by the Fayetteville Council of Neighborhoods, featured both candidates – incumbent Mayor Lioneld Jordan and former Fayetteville mayor Dan Coody.
FCON chairman Richard Russell played host for the evening while Fiona Davidson, an associate professor of European Studies at the University of Arkansas, moderated the debate.
A coin toss decided which order candidates would deliver their opening and closing statements.
Included below are short videos of both candidate’s statements, including their roughly three-minute answers to each question and their one-minute responses. The event was also recorded by the Fayetteville Government Channel and is available – with higher quality video and audio – at accessfayetteville.org.
