Leading Questions: Philadelphia Mayoral Debate

Posted by WHYY on October 5, 2015

Following Michael Nutter’s eight years of service, Philadelphians will elect a new mayor this November. Democratic candidate Jim Kenney and Republican candidate Melissa Murray-Bailey are both vying for the seat at City Hall. Join us for a debate where both candidates will share their vision for the city of Philadelphia.

This debate is a joint effort of WHYY/NewsWorks, the Committee of Seventy, Young Involved Philadelphia, NAACP Millennials, Influencing Action Movement and the Urban Philly Professional Network. Questioners will be Katie Colaneri and Kevin McCorry of WHYY. The debate will also be available via live stream.

This event is an official pre-event for YIP’s State of Young Philadelphia, which runs October 16 – 24.

This event is free and open to the public, but seating is limited and registration is required.
