Brockway, PA – Brockway Area High School hosted a mini-debate between Representative Cris Dush and challenger Kerith Strano-Taylor on Monday.

The two candidates met up as Brockway teachers Rachel Chamberlain and Erin Schiafone promoted Constitution Day.

Students asked the candidates questions, which mostly came to funding for schools and roads.

Dush, who touted his work finding secret ledgers of state money, explained that the reason he ran for office was to fight the corruption in Washington and Harrisburg.  Taylor felt that corporate tax cuts and Harrisburg not meeting their obligations were causing the current funding climate.

Both candidates stressed the importance of the Constitution and the right to vote. They encouraged students to get involved.
