Local business leaders are getting ready for another mayoral forum Tuesday night in Colorado Springs. It's scheduled for 5:15 p.m. at the Fine Arts Center.
News First 5 hosted the candidates for a debate earlier this month, but on Tuesday candidates will be specifically talking about business. Several business-related organizations are hosting this event, and they want to know how our new mayor will function as essentially the C.E.O. of the city. They say community business leaders want to know too.
"For many this will be their first introduction, first hand, to these candidates, and, quid pro quo, this will be the first time many of these candidates will have met our business leaders," explains Robert Todd, co-organizer of Tuesday's forum.
A reception will follow, where community members will get a chance to ask the candidates questions for themselves. You do have to buy tickets to attend. The forum is already sold out, but organizers say you're welcome to show up and be on the stand-by list.
