YORK -- Three candidates for the special election coming up next Tuesday for the 28th District Senate seat debated Thursday morning.  The event was broadcast and moderated by our news partners, Newsradio 910 WSBA.
Democrat Linda Small is running against Republicans Scott Wagner and Rep. Ron Miller.  They want to fill the vacant seat of Senator Mike Waugh.
The candidate who wins Tuesday will still need to re-run in the May primary, as the rest of this term only covers one year.
Because of redistricting, some voters who currently live in the district will not be able to vote, while other voters who do not live in the district will be able to vote.

If you have concerns about your voting eligibility, contact the York County Election Bureau.
Gary Sutton hosted the debate. 
Linda Small said, "One of the issues I want to bring up is the homeless veteran population in Pennsylvania. It has increased over the last four years; while the rest of the nation’s homeless population for veterans has decreased."

Scott Wagner spoke of term limits. "We need term limits in Harrisburg. I believe it should be an eight year term max, just like a governor and just like the president."

Rep. Ron Miller talked about taxes and the opportunity for wealthier districts to support changes, "You have to understand the funding formula that is now in place. We have winners all over the state at an expense to my constituents and York County," he said.
