According to the Gazette, "A Cedar Rapids mayoral candidate forum has been scheduled from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on October 19th." The event will be held at the Cedar Rapids Public Library, in Whipple Auditorium.

As most of you know, current Mayor Rob Corbett is not seeking re-election. I'm looking forward to this forum, as I don't know very little about the candidates. They include Monica Vernon, Scott Olson, Kris Gulick, Brad Hart, Jorel Robinson, Gary Hinzeman, Tim Pridegon and Lemi Tilahun.

Election day is on November 7th, but early voting begins on Thursday, October 5th.
