For the first time in 16 years, St. Louis will be electing a new mayor. To ensure residents are well-informed on how candidates plan to address challenges facing the city and the region, FOCUS is partnering with other community organizations to host the upcoming mayoral forum.
The discussion will focus on regional issues outlined by the signature priorities of the Forward through Ferguson Report, with special emphasis placed on youth well-being and opportunity, neighborhood improvement, racial equity, and leadership and management styles.
The reception begins at 6 p.m., with forum starting promptly at 7 p.m. Registration is free and required.
An inclusionary policy will be used to determine which of the many candidates will be participating in this Forum.
