#157: Mayoral Candidate Forum

It may be hard to believe, but the political cycle is back in full-swing. The primary election day is May 3, a mere 35 days away. This particular election cycle is an important one for South Bend as the city will choose a new mayor. We've previously exhorted you to vote, and the reason for doing so still holds true. Of all the things you can do in South Bend (and particularly if you're invested in the ongoing thriving-or-dying debate), participating civically can be one of the most fulfilling and effective.

As a precursor to the primaries and the entire campaign season, the Chamber of Commerce, the Young Professionals Network, WSBT, and the South Bend Tribune are hosting a Mayoral Candidates Forum tonight at the Century Center. They have described the event as a "job interview for candidates" and it provides a great opportunity for any South Bend resident to learn more about all of their potential mayors. Before you vote, take the time to get all of the information and help the candidates to figure out how to best lead the South Bend of the future.

Where: Bendix Theater, Century Center
When: 6:30pm-9:00pm
No registration required!
