Hattiesburg mayoral candidates respond to debate request

HATTIESBURG, MS (WDAM) - WDAM hand delivered letters to both the Dave Ware and Johnny DuPree campaign offices last week, offering the candidates an hour in prime time for a candidate forum before the September 24th special election.

Our offer was either September 17th or 19th, from 7pm to 8pm.  Dave Ware has accepted our offer and says either night is fine with him. Mayor DuPree informed us Friday afternoon that neither date works for him.

We'll keep you posted.
