It’s the season. Pumpkin spice, Friday football and, of course, election-fueled public sparring on issues affecting all citizens of the commonwealth.
Mark your calendars for Tuesday, October 2, for a debate between candidates for the Kentucky State Senate District 24 seat, incumbent Wil Schroder (R) and challenger Rachel Roberts (D). The event will run from 6 to 7:30 p.m. at Northern Kentucky University’s Votruba Student Union.
Matt Frey, a member of NKU student government, came to the August Fort Thomas City Council meeting to formally invite the council and the community to this student-sponsored event.
"Part of our plan this year is to become more civically engaged. I’m just here to make some connections with you all and promote the event we are putting together… We want to see a packed house out there and especially with those from counties within the 24th senate district," he said.

He added that the debate is only the first effort by the students to increase their active engagement in the communities served by the university.
The James C. and Rachel M. Vortruba Student Union is located on the NKU campus, Louie B Nunn Drive in Highland Heights. Parking is free, and registration for this free event is available on the KY State Senate District 24 Debate page on Eventbrite.
The election is Tuesday, November 6. Kentucky District 24 includes Bracken, Campbell and Pendleton counties.
