Join AL DÍA News Media for this unique conversation leading up to the 2015 Philadelphia Mayoral Race!
This conversation will break the wall between the candidates, the media, and the public. The mayoral candidates will converse with a selection of the city’s leading journalists in front of a diverse audience. The candidates will field questions primarily from the journalists, but also from the audience, who will submit questions for the candidates via Twitter during the event.
Featured journalists will include:
Solomon Jones (900AM WURD)
Shai Ben-Yaacov (WHYY)
Helen Ubiñas (Philadelphia Daily News)
Steve Bo-Le Yuan (Metro Chinese Weekly)
Chris Krewson (Billy Penn)
