WSU to host both Wichita mayoral candidates for a forum on October 18th

Wichita State University (WSU) has partnered up with the Wichita Beacon, Loud Light and the League of Women Voters to host a Mayoral Forum on Wednesday, October 18th from 12:00-1:00 p.m. in the CAC Theater on the Wichita State University Main Campus.

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 answers. 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 from the Wichita State University, Political Science Department and a Wichita State student elected to represent student voices.

The event is open to the public and ticketing is not required. For additional questions reach out to the Student Engagement, Advocacy & Leadership (SEAL) office at Wichita State University by either calling 316-978-7016 or emailing
