Binghamton, NY (WBNG Binghamton) Local students prepare hard hitting questions for a mayoral candidate debate.

Students at Seton Catholic and Binghamton High School joined forces to both mayoral candidates, Teri Renia and Rich David.

On October 29th inside the Helen Foley Theater at Binghamton High School, the public will be able to watch students ask the questions.

Many of the students feel their voices are often bushed aside and need to be taken more seriously if they're being asked to stay in the area.

Students say top questions involve crime and infrastructure in the city.

"I think it's a different perspective from students. We're trying to get people to stay in the area. There's a big problem with people leaving. If you get involved young you're more likely to stay," Seton Catholic senior Robert Kelly said.

Students at both schools say joining together makes them a stronger front.
