BUFFALO, N.Y. -- The University at Buffalo Law School will host a debate between the candidates for Erie County executive at 6:45 p.m. on Oct. 28 in 106 O'Brian Hall on the UB North (Amherst) Campus.

Republican incumbent Joel Giambra, and Democrat challenger Dan Ward will square off in anticipation of what many consider to be Erie County's most significant local election. Topics are expected to include regionalism, the City of Buffalo's bid for a share in the extra 1 percent sales tax, waterfront development and expansion of public transportation.

The debate is free and open to the public, and seating is limited. Sponsors of the debate are UB's Progressive Law Society and the Law School Republicans.
