The two incumbents and four challengers in the East Lansing City Council race will square off in a debate tonight at an event arranged by the Associated Students of Michigan State University (ASMSU), the undergraduate student government.
The event will run from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. in Room 115 of the MSU International Center at 427 N. Shaw Lane. Parking on campus is free after 6 p.m. in many lots, including the one just south of the International Center.
This debate is not expected to be taped, and it is anticipated to be the only debate for this election.
