REHOBOTH BEACH, Del.- The Rehoboth Beach – Dewey Beach Chamber of Commerce has announced it will host a Mayoral debate and commissioner’s candidate’s forum on Wednesday, July 30, beginning at 9:30 a.m. in the Rehoboth Beach City Hall's commissioner’s room. The forum will last approximately an hour and a half based on a full slate of candidates’ participation.

The chamber has invited the following declared candidates- incumbent Mayor Sam Cooper, Francis Markert, mayoral candidate Tom McGlone, Kathleen McGuiness, John Meng, Lawrence Myslewski, and incumbent Commissioner Lorraine Zellers. Keith Martin, chairman of the board of directors of RBDBCC, will provide introductions and Dennis Forney, publisher of the Cape Gazette, will serve as moderator. Chip Hearn, member of the RBDBCC Board of Directors, will act as timekeeper, enforcing all rules and procedures.

The event will begin with a debate between incumbent Mayor Sam Cooper and Tom McGlone. Candidates will be presented in alphabetical order. Four questions prepared by RBDBCC and unknown to the candidates will be asked, and each candidate will be allowed a one-minute response to the question and one-minute rebuttal to their opponent.

A full candidates’ forum will follow the mayoral debate. Candidates for the office of commissioner will be presented in alphabetical order. The full forum will continue with seven questions prepared by RBDBCC and unknown to the candidates. All seven candidates, mayoral and commissioner will draw a question. The candidate drawing the question will have one minute to respond followed by a one-minute response from all candidates alphabetically.

The forum will end with a Q& A session taken from the floor and directed to the candidates. The event timeline allows for approximately 10 minutes for questions. Questions taken from the floor may be no longer than one minute in length and non-repetitive. Given the number of candidates and timeline, questions will be directed to only one specific candidate. Candidates will be allowed a one-minute response for the question from the floor.
