ARLnow.com and Arlington Independent Media will be sponsoring a debate between the two Democrats running for the 49th District House of Delegates seat next week.

Alfonso Lopez and Stephanie Clifford will face off on live TV (Comcast channel 69 and Verizon channel 38) from 7:30 to 8:30 p.m. on Monday, Aug. 8. The public is encouraged to watch on TV, on the internet or live in-studio. The debate will be held at the AIM studios at 2701 Wilson Blvd #C.

We’ll be asking about 10 questions of the candidates. If there’s a question you want answered, please let us know in the comments.

The 49th District, currently represented by Del. Adam Ebbin, includes much of South Arlington. Ebbin, a Democrat, is running for state Senate.

This year’s primary will be held on Aug. 23.

    In addition, I will be moderating the Republican primary debate. In lieu of the usual debate format, and in the name of efficiency, the candidates will square off in a best-of-three “rock, paper, scissors” match.

    Why would you want to post the questions here? Don’t you want the candidates to show that they can hold their own without having seen the questions beforehand?

  • Captain Obvious

    Ask Clifford why I should vote for her in a primary when she has never voted in a primary.
