The seven candidates for at-large city councilor will meet Monday in Beacon Hill for the fourth biennial candidate forum that will focus on neighborhood issues.
The October 24 forum is jointly sponsored by organizations representing several neighborhoods, including Beacon Hill, Back Bay, South End, Fenway, North End, Bay Village, and West End, according to Rob Whitney, a Beacon Hill Civic Association member who is coordinating the event.
Some neighborhoods will provide buses to transport residents to the event, Whitney said.
Beacon Hill resident Peter Nessen, the former state secretary of administration and finance, will host the forum, with topics including busing for students, neighborhood schools, large scale developments, and housing for growing families.
Last year drew over 90 people, Whitney said in an announcement at the Beacon Hill Civic Association board meeting, and the forum is usually the biggest city councilor forum in the city.
The forum will be Monday, October 24 from 6:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the Park Street School auditorium, 67 Brimmer Street.
