The two candidates in the District 3 city council run-off election held a public debate on Monday night.

Deanne Clark and Jeff Griffith are both vying for the seat currently held by Todd Klein, who is not seeking re-election.

Clark and Griffith both gave voters better insight into what they have planned if elected.

Griffith said his first priority will be, "LP&L. The future of LP&L. Let's make sure we take care of future power generation.it's a key issue for us all in our city."

Clark focused on, "$1.2 billion debt. I just think if we don't start whittling away on that it's going to eat into everything else, and we're going to leave a terrible legacy for our children and grandchildren."
