Republican Heather Adams and Democrat Hobie Crystle -- the two candidates for Lancaster County district attorney -- took the stage at Millersville University’s Ware Center in downtown Lancaster on Tuesday night for a debate hosted by LNP and LancasterOnline.

Whoever wins the Nov. 5 election will represent a groundbreaking change for the office -- with either the first woman or first Democrat taking office in January.

Questioning the district attorney candidates were Mary Glazier, chair of Millersville University’s department of criminology, sociology and anthropology and director for the university’s Center for Public Scholarship and Social Change; Maida R. Milone, president and CEO of Pennsylvanians for Modern Courts; and Barbara Hough Huesken, community liaison for LNP/LancasterOnline.
