Council Forum Set for Friday

Several groups are teaming up to sponsor a forum on Friday for candidates running for Cincinnati City Council.

So far, seven candidates — including one incumbent — have indicated they will attend the session. They are Councilman Wendell Young, a Democrat; Nicholas Hollan, Jason Riveiro, Chris Seelbach and P.G. Sittenfeld, also Democrats; and Kevin Flynn and Yvette Simpson, who are Charterites.—-

 Others may be announced before the event.

The forum, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 4:30-7:30 p.m. at Keys of the Kingdom United Methodist Church, 4400 Reading Road, in Avondale. A panel will ask questions of the candidates, some of which will be generated through social media.

Cincinnati Change is organizing the event. It's co-sponsored by the Hamilton County Young Democrats, Coffee Party Cincinnati, United Methodist Men of Keys of the Kingdom, the League of United Latin American Citizens and the Cincinnati/Hamilton County Black Republican Forum.

Topics scheduled to be discussed include neighborhood development, minority business issues, public safety and mass transit.
