Videos: Who's Running in Tuesday's Special Election for Jane Orie's Seat?

Patch presents video highlights from a Meet the Candidates event so voters can hear directly from Democratic candidate Dr. Sharon Brown, Republican candidate Rep. Randy Vulakovich and write-in candidate Don Bindas.

Tuesday is Election Day for the citizens of the 40th senatorial district, which was formerly represented by Jane Orie.

Two names are on the ballot to serve out Orie’s term through 2014: Republican Randy Vulakovich and Democrat Dr. Sharon Brown.

Last week businessman Don Bindas announced he is running as a write-in candidate.

All three spoke Tuesday night at a Meet the Candidates event hosted by the Chamber of Commerce in Wexford.

Each candidate gave a statement, then answered an assortment of questions from about 60 people in the audience.

In case you missed it, Patch was there.

Also, here are video highlights from each prospective senator's responses to residents’ questions. Simply click on them in the box above.

Because of technical difficulties this video is not a complete account of every issue discussed, but it is minimally edited so residents can hear directly from the candidates.

The 40th District encompasses parts of Allegheny and southern Butler counties, including Pine, Richland, Ross and Cranberry townships and West View Borough.
