BUFFALO, N.Y. -- As November 8 approaches, candidates are in the home stretch of promoting their campaigns to the public.

Sunday, 60th District Senate Seat candidates Amber Small and Chris Jacobs debated and described why they are most qualified for the position on the WBEN Radio Hardline program with host Dave Debo. The 60th District includes Grand Island, Tonawanda, parts of Buffalo and some Southtowns.

Small emphasized her experience working as a Buffalo community advocate.

"My work in the Parkside Community Association; My work in municipal finance; I have a proven track record of delivering for our community," Small said. "And if elected, I'll be able to do that on a larger scale. You know Chris has been on the ballot half a dozen times in ten years. Things don't seem to be getting better."

Jacobs, on the other hand, pushed working as a developer, school board member and Erie County Clerk.

"In my number of years serving this community in the private sector, in the non-profit sector, creating a charity in the Bison Fund, and my accomplishments as Erie County Clerk really reforming that division of government, I've accumulated a diversity of skill sets that really make me able to be an impact player there," Jacobs said.
