The People's Forum

Thursday, October 10, 2019

The People's Forum is a city commission candidate forum for the upcoming election in Manhattan. Seven out of eight candidates will be in attendance: Aaron Estabrook, Kaleb James, Linda Morse, Mauren Sheahan, Mary Renee Shirk, Sarah Siders and Vincent Tracey.
A family room for parents and children will be available at this event.
Issues that candidates will speak on include:
Rental inspections
Living wages
Climate change
Affordable housing
Biking and walking
Participatory budgeting
LGBTQ rights
Structure of forum:
A select group of community organizations has prepared specific "asks" of each of the candidates. Speakers will share a brief personal impact story, followed by the related organizational "ask"; city commission candidates will have a brief, timed period to respond directly to each speaker's story and organizational "ask" before moving on to the next organization's speaker.
