The North Beach Senior Center has announced the schedule for the upcoming 2019 Ocean Shores candidate debates.
Jeff Moyer, director of the center, stated: “There is an exciting campaign climate in Ocean Shores. Everyone has an opinion. Coming to a debate between candidates and hearing their opinions and visions for the future of Ocean Shores is the best way to really get to know the candidates and their perspectives. Sometimes, it is easy to listen to a friend or relative, but they may be biased. I hope many citizens take advantage of the debates to make informed decisions.”
As presently scheduled, the dates of upcoming debates are as follows:
Sept. 3: TBD
Sept. 10: Ocean Shores Council Position 4, Jon Martin and Lorraine Hardin
Sept. 17: Ocean Shores Council Position 3, Richard Wills and Frank Elduen

Ocean Shores Council Position 7 candidates, Eric Noble and David Linn, met to debate at the North Beach Senior Center on August 27. Both candidates effectively stated their positions and visions for the future growth and development of the City.
