Chicago Urban League Hosts Mayoral Forum

CHICAGO “Mayoral Forum 2011: The Race To City Hall,” a live, community forum presented by FOX Chicago, the Chicago Urban League and Harriet’s Daughters, will take place on Thursday, February 10th at Kennedy-King College. The community forum will serve as one of the last Chicago mayoral debates prior to the election on February 22nd.  

 

Broadcast live on FOX Chicago at 9:30 p.m. CT, the forum, hosted by FOX Chicago anchors Robin Robinson and Bob Sirott, will follow a special half-hour edition of “FOX Chicago News at 9 p.m.” The one-hour forum will feature the city’s leading mayoral candidates, invited to participate based on their standing in polls of the electorate.

                             
In making the announcement, Andrea L. Zopp, president and CEO of the Chicago Urban League said, “This historic mayoral election comes at a critical time for Chicago and every citizen should be fully engaged in the electoral process. We are organizing this forum to hear directly from the candidates about where they stand on issues such as education funding, safety, and job creation. We also want the candidates to hear from community members about the issues they expect the candidates to address should they be elected mayor.”

 

Mike Renda, FOX Chicago WFLD General Manager added, “We are pleased to give our viewers an opportunity to learn more about the candidates and their positions. This is a prime example of our station’s dedication to serving our community through quality programming that educates our viewers.”


“This forum gives candidates the opportunity to speak directly to community leaders and constituents about how they plan to make Chicago a better place to live for all of its citizens,” said Sophia King, a founding member of Harriet’s Daughters.  “We hope to provide a productive platform for candidates to discuss their solutions for addressing the incredible challenges facing the city.”

 

Panelists for the mayoral forum will be Mike Flannery, political editor at FOX Chicago News, Cliff Kelley, host of “The Cliff Kelley Show” on WVON (1690 AM) and Natalie Moore, a reporter for the South Side Bureau of WBEZ (91.5 FM). WVAZ “V103” (102.7 FM) personality Kris Kelley will also be a contributor to the program.
