A defining issue of 2019 city elections will be the subject of a candidate forum next week.
Candidates for mayor and City Council president will discuss homelessness at the downtown Spokane Public Library on Sept. 5.
Mayoral candidates Nadine Woodward and Ben Stuckart will both participate, as will City Council president candidates Cindy Wendle and Breean Beggs.
The Spokane Homeless Coalition, the Spokane Low Income Housing Consortium and the Spokane Public Library are sponsoring the forum. Kay Murano, executive director of the Spokane Low Income Housing Consortium and Joe Ader, chair of the Spokane Homeless Coalition, will moderate the discussion.
Doors open at 8:30 a.m., and the event will begin at 9 a.m.
