House District 36 candidates were featured in a debate on Tuesday in the Kayhi auditorium. Trevor Shaw (R) and incumbent Dan Ortiz (I) answered a series of questions brought forth by Kayhi American Government classes. The debate was moderated by SBA President Chris Brown and Senior Class President Maya Parker.
The candidates were asked many questions about the cruise ship docks, Permanent Fund Dividend (PFD), state budget, education, taxes, and the 2018 Alaska Gubernatorial Race. Both candidates had two minutes to answer the question and one minute to rebut their opponents statement.
Ortiz and Shaw went back and forth on issues, disagreeing on many, but both worked to convince students to vote in the upcoming midterm election on Nov 6, despite who they would vote for.
