A debate between Tom McClintock, current CD04 Representative, and Jessica Morse, will be hosted by the Mariposa Gazette on September 23, 2018.

The event is to be held from 2:00pm to 4:00pm at the Richard D. Fiester Auditorium at Mariposa High School.

Ticket information

The format for the debate will include an equal amount of time for each candidate to address the issues.

Greg Little, editor and co-owner of the Mariposa Gazette, will moderate.

There are a limited amount of tickets available for this debate. The campaign committees for the candidates will each receive 25 percent of the tickets. The remaining tickets (one-half) will be distributed by the newspaper.

To do that fairly, there will be a lottery established for the tickets. Persons are being asked to send their requests for debate tickets to greg@mariposagazette.com, or dropped off at our office at 5108 Highway 140, Suite B in Mariposa. For regular mail, use “Debate tickets” as the first line.

Requests can be for a maximum of two tickets.

To be eligible to be in the lottery, interested persons must include their name, complete address, telephone number and, if at all possible, an email address. Email is the preferred method of communication.

They will take ticket requests through the end of business on Monday, Sept. 10. After that, the tickets will be drawn and people will be contacted if their names were chosen through the lottery.

Once that takes place, they will be distributing the tickets accordingly. Tickets will be required to get into the auditorium the afternoon of the debate.
