*The DRA understands there are concerns regarding the participants of this event. Due to scheduling constraints, we felt it was necessary to limit the number of invitations, and allow participants enough time to deliver their messages. Those invitations were based on information available at the deadline for declarations of candidacy.
The DRA is holding a second event on October 13, where all Mayoral and Council candidates are invited to participate.
