YORKTOWN, NY – Yorktown Supervisor Candidate Matt Slater has formally accepted an invitation to participate in the debate held by the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce on October 23rd. In a letter to candidates and party leaders, Yorktown Chamber of Commerce President Sergio Esposito offered to incorporate appointed monitors by local political parties to ensure a fair and bipartisan forum for the public.
