The city's current mayor, Elizabeth Minor and candidate, Patrick Farris went head to head at the Winchester Mayoral Candidates Forum, moderated by Suzan Herskowitz. They shared their views on the concerns and accomplishments of the city.
"The constituencies have wanted to address whether or not John Kerr Elementary School should move, why certain projects have been done within the city - Amherst Street, Millwood, Indian Alley and also how money is being spent," says moderator Suzan Herskowitz.
Minor believed in maintaining the image of the city.
"We have our downtown that we're going to be revitalizing starting the first of January and we have just have a lot of infrastructure that we have to finish," says Minor.
Meanwhile, Farris focused on upholding more homes.
"We need to encourage the rehabilitation and restoration of single family homes to that original usage throughout the city. That is one thing that I think is highly important because as the city grows in population, we are not going to grow in territory," says Farris.
Both used the forum as their golden keys to gain votes from the people of Winchester.Crowds huddled to discuss their final voting decision amongst one another.
