Community invited to Wichita Mayoral Candidate Forum on campus Oct. 18

Join the Mayoral Forum from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 18 in the CAC Theater, in partnership with the Wichita Beacon, Loud Light and the League of Women Voters.

The forum will host both 2023 mayoral candidates. The forum will provide an opportunity for each candidate to answer a series of ten questions. Each candidate will be allowed 90 seconds for their answer and an additional 30 seconds for a rebuttal. Content for the question has come from WSU students as well as from Beacon readers who were invited to submit questions in September.

The forum will be moderated by Neal Allen — associate professor and chair of the Department of Political Science — and a Wichita State student selected to represent student voices.

The event is open to the public and tickets are not required. For additional questions, reach out to the Student Engagement, Advocacy & Leadership office by either calling 316-978-7016 or emailing
