Rangra, Lujan agree to debate
ALPINE – Alpine Mayor Avinash Rangra and former Alpine City Council Member Carlos Lujan have agreed to a public debate, according to the Big Bend Gazette.
Both Lujan and Rangra asked Gazette Publisher John Waters to moderate.
Lujan is leading a recall petition campaign against the mayor.
Rangra included the following stipulation regarding the debate: “But they need to be very specific [in questions to Rangra]; I don’t want to sit there and have them ask questions to show my innocence.”
Date and location for the debate have yet to be determined, though most likely the event will be scheduled for later this month. Details will be published when available. www.bigbendgazette.com.
