The Mighty 1290 KOIL Mayoral Debate

In preparation for what promises to be a tough contest for this year’s race for Omaha Mayor, all five candidates will participate in the area’s first official mayoral debate of the season.

The candidates will address issues and concerns as posed by the 1290 KOIL broadcasters Tom Becka and Clint Bellows along with KETV City Hall Reporter, Todd Andrews.
