Mayoral and District 6 forum tonight
The first of at least four mayoral forums over the next three weeks kicks off tonight at the Hilton Bayfront.
Doors open at 6 p.m. for the event hosted by the Downtown Neighborhood Association and moderated by the League of Women Voters in the hotel's Grand Bay South ballroom, 333 1st St. S.
The eight candidates for District 6, which covers much of Midtown, downtown and parts of the Old Northeast, will go first at 6:30. The mayoral candidates take the stage around 7 p.m. The event will conclude around 8:30 p.m., according to a event page on Facebook.
This forum won't just be limited to Mayor Rick Kriseman and former mayor Rick Baker. All six candidates are invited. The other candidates are Theresa "Momma Tee" Lassiter, Jesse Nevel, Anthony Cates III and Paul Congemi.
