Phoenix Mayoral Candidates Will Be Asking the Questions at Forum Hosted by Downtown Voices Coalition
Phoenix mayoral candidates have shared their views during several forums across the city.
And there's another tonight hosted by Downtown Voices Coalition, but this one is deviating from the standard Q&A-style format where questions come from a moderator.
At this downtown-centric mayoral forum, moderated by the Arizona Republic's Richard Ruelas, candidates will ask the questions -- of each other.
The coalition, a group of business and community leaders, wants to shake things up ... and this format could get interesting.
The forum runs from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 tonight in the Park Room at the Lexington Hotel, 1100 N. Central Avenue (a block north of of Roosevelt).
Organizers say each candidate will show up with a question for each of his or her opponents. Names will be randomly selected, and candidates will pose questions to each other.
Seating is limited, so arrive early.
Or hang out at the Cycle Restaurant & Bar where organizers plan to pipe in audio from the forum for an overflow crowd. Enjoy a brew and listen to the candidates quiz each other on downtown issues.
