Challenger Nunes Attends Transpo Debate; Incumbent Huntley a No-Show

UPDATE: Strike the original post (formerly titled: "Challenger Nunes Reportedly Backs Out of Transportation Debate"). Lynn Nunes did answer questions at tonight's District 10 transportation debate, while longtime incumbent Shirley Huntley did not attend. We'll have details from the event tomorrow.

Lynn Nunes, the challenger going up against Shirley Huntley in the State Senate's 10th District, has backed out of tonight's debate on transportation issues, reports Celeste Katz at the Daily Politics. I'm about to head over to the debate site in Richmond Hill, Queens and haven't been able to confirm the abrupt cancellation with the Nunes campaign.

Voters who show up expecting to learn about candidates' transportation positions may have to settle for an evening of letter writing, asking why their prospective representatives think it's acceptable to avoid answering their questions.
