Boston mayoral candidates will take part in a forum in Brighton on Tuesday, July 23.
The event is scheduled to start with an informal meet-and-greet at 6:30 p.m. followed by a forum moderated by state Senator William Brownsberger from 7 to 8:30 p.m. at the WGBH Theater at the corner of Guest and Market streets, according to an announcement from the event’s co-sponsors: The Allston Board of Trade, the Brighton Board of Trade and the Brighton Allston Improvement Association.
“The forum will provide an excellent opportunity for both the residents and business community of Allston Brighton to hear the positions of the various candidates and their vision for the future of Boston,” the groups said in a statement.
Organizers said the following candidates have confirmed they will attend: Felix Arroyo, John Connolly, Rob Consalvo, Charlotte Golar Richie, Michael Ross, Bill Walczak, Marty Walsh, and Charles Yancey
"The winner will very likely be the chief policy administrator and legislative agenda setter for many years to come,” said a statement from Nick Papakyrikos, president of the Brighton Board of Trade. “In other words, now is the best opportunity for any business owner to have some input and impact on this election, which will affect all area businesses for the foreseeable future."
Seating will be available on a first-come-first-serve basis. The event is free to attend. Free parking is available in the WGBH/New Balance garage next door to the theater.
