With less than a month until the April 13 Brooklyn Park special primary election for mayor, candidate forums are starting to happen.
Seven candidates running to be Brooklyn Park Mayor will face off for the first time in a live in-person forum at City Hall on Tuesday, March 16. No audience will be allowed however due to the pandemic.
It will be broadcast live on CCX Media. You can watch online at this link if you don’t live in the broadcast area.
Candidates that filed by the deadline last month were Wynfred Russell, Hollies Winston, Mark Mata, Boyd Morson, Yelena S. Kurdyumova, Benjamin Osemenam and Lisa Jacobson.
The League of Women Voters of Brooklyn Park, Osseo and Maple Grove and the Twin West Chamber of Commerce are hosting the forum in conjunction with CCX Media.
It runs from 6:30 pm to 8:30 p.m.
Residents with questions can submit them in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or CandidateForums@twinwest.com.
Early voting and absentee voting for the special primary election is already underway and will close on April 12.
Another candidate forum hosted by ACER, Africa Let’s Talk, Mshale and Minnesota Voices will be held on March 23 at 6:00 p.m.
