FRIDAY, MAY 3, 2013 – The four Democratic mayoral candidates are pleased by the heightened level of interest in this race from every neighborhood. However, the demand of the schedule of forums has proven to be exhausting. For this reason, representatives of the four campaigns have reviewed the upcoming events and have agreed to attend only the ones listed below. The changes are effective Monday, May 6 and do not affect anything scheduled before Monday.

Just as we came together in the spirit of cooperation, we are confident that similar collaboration will occur among forum organizers so that every group can still be involved. Each candidate expresses gratitude to the community for their understanding. We are looking forward to continuing to share our platforms and answering your concerns.
