A group of civic awareness organizations, including First Place Campaigns and the Citizens for Civic Education, are planning to host a mayoral candidates forum on Saturday, Nov. 10, 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., at Greater St. John Bible Church, 1256 N. Waller Ave. in Austin. 

"The candidates have been invited and will participate in an interactive panel that will solicit questions from a blue-ribbon panel, written questions from the public and an online audience," according to a statement the sponsors released today.

Anyone with questions for the candidates can send them to: Jonathan Todd at

"The purpose of the Candidate Forum is to give Westside voters, historically the most engaged and from the area of Chicago with the highest voter turnout, an opportunity to hear candidates discuss the issues of importance to them in this election," the statement reads. "The event is free and open to the public."

Evelyn Holmes, an ABC 7 news anchor, will moderate the event.
