Candidates Address Train Station Parking, More

NORWALK – If you're still undecided in Norwalk's mayor's race, it might help to hear what the candidates have to say in a series of videos made by The Daily Norwalk at a two-hour-long debate hosted by the League of Women Voters of Norwalk. Questions asked by members of the public took up a bulk of the time at the debate, covering topics as diverse as the city's website to the Oak Hills golf course .

In the video, Republican incumbent Richard Moccia and Democratic challenger Andy Garfunkel answer this question: "How would you improve parking at the railroad stations?"

In other videos, you can hear them agree that anti-bullying programs are a good thing, answer a question posed by a high school student about the future of the housing market and discuss preschool education . You can even hear their thoughts on Occupy Wall Street (although this video is out of focus).

Other questions answered on You Tube are:

? How would you conduct the search for a new police chief and who would be included on the search team? How should the candidates be identified and evaluated?

? NBC Sports has announced that it is moving to Stamford. What would you do to attract new business to Norwalk while redevelopment has stalled out over the last six years?

? What approach do you plan on measuring department head performance and ensuring accountability and what approach do you plan on taking if and when openings occur for these positions?

? At what point does redevelopment negatively impact the quality of our life, for instance, traffic.

? What would you do to encourage businesses to hire summer youth program participants?

? None of Norwalk developments have moved ahead despite deadlines and commitments that have passed. What are your plans to accelerate these "long promised and projects?"

? What is the mayor’s role and responsibility for helping all Norwalk schools meet state and national standards?

? Have you or will you take campaign money from people with city contracts ?
