The gubenatorial candidates have finally decided the Cleveland debate(On edit, I now see there are others scheduled for Cincinnati, Columbus and Youngstown, which is better, I think, than having them all in Cleveland).

I think some debates could be held in more rural areas like Wooster, where cutting edge technologies and a diversified economy illustrate how to get things done at the community level. This is how the state will move forward. The candidates could elevate the debates and move away from non-issue "issues" and name-calling.

Having all the "debates" in urban areas perpetuates an incomplete picture of Ohio and the "northern/southern Ohio" syndrome that pits geographic entities against one another.
