Three different candidate forums are set to take place prior to the end of March organized by city organizations to explore the views of mayoral and council at-large candidates.
On Wednesday, a council at-large candidate forum is being hosted by the Hillcrest Neighborhood Association inside School 27 on Richmond Avenue.
“Candidates will have the opportunity to present their platforms and address residents’ questions and concerns,” said Rita Gernant, vice president of the association, in an email.
