Leads for Journalism

posted by .

I'm having difficulties writing a lead for my speech. My speech story will be on the Portage City Council and mayor candidates regarding the city's challenges over the next two years. All their answers were different.
My lead was going to simply be: Portage City Council and mayor candidates talked about the city’s biggest challenges over the next two years. I'd then continue on from there, but I know you're suppose to put what they said.. How do you incorporate various answers into a one sentence lead?

    Choose one or two of what seem to be the most important answers. Money and the budget strikes me as most important.
