All Mayoral candidates have been sent a DFWI Annual Report and a State of Downtown publication so that they are aware of the underlying dynamics of Downtown. Questions for the candidates will be focused on topics that directly affect Downtown.


Each candidate will have the opportunity to introduce themselves and make a two-minute opening statement.

Following this, a moderator will ask questions. Each candidate will have up to one minute to respond.

Attending citizens may submit questions before the beginning of the forum or send questions in advance here.

Registration is closed due to limited occupancy. We encourage all attendees to arrive on time and be courteous to others.
