Ryan McMahon was appointed Onondaga County Executive in November 2018 following the resignation of Joanie Mahoney. At the time, McMahon was serving as chairman of the Onondaga County Legislature. McMahon is running for county executive for the first time next month. His opponent is Democrat Tony Malavenda, a longtime business owner running for political office for the first time since the early 1980s. McMahon and Malavenda sit down for their first broadcast debate with Grant Reeher, and discuss many issues, including campaign spending, poverty and more. 

Note: The broadcast version of the debate, which airs on WRVO on Saturday, 10/5, at 6:30 a.m. and Sunday, 10/6, at 6:30 p.m., runs 30 minutes. The version here is an extended version of the debate, which runs nearly an hour.
