Hello, Advocate readers. The Victoria City Council election is coming up on May 11 and we have debates scheduled with the candidates.

First up will be the debate for the mayoral election. Beginning at 11 a.m., incumbent Will Armstrong, Paul Polasek, Omar Rachid, Henry Perez and Richard Andrew Deases will share their goals and ideas for the office of mayor.

We want to know what you want to ask these candidates. We will have some questions prepared, but we also want to hear from you. Leave a comment below asking what you want to ask these candidates and we will choose the best questions to include in our debate.

These debates will also be open to the public. If you want to attend, please call 361-580-6590 at least 24 hours beforehand so we can prepare seating in the Victoria Advocate Green Room. If you can't make it in person, we will be webcasting and recording the debates. You can watch it live at our home page or check Election Central later for the recording. We hope to see you there.
