McLean County Clerk's Debate
They traded accusations and campaign promises at last night's County Clerk's Debate at Heartland Community College. Republican County Clerk Kathy Michael and Democratic challenger Nikita Richards participated in the hourlong debate on public radio station WGLT which was sponsored by the League of Women's Voters. Michael talked about increased cybersecurity and accused Richards of "defamation" in the campaign. Richards talked about more resources and outreach to voters who she believes are underserved and disenfranchised. Both candidates are facing ethics complaints.
