See that box up there on our homepage about the mayoral debate? You can sign up for a reminder about the live blog action to be found here at alibi.com on Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 7 p.m.
Four media outlets have joined forces to put on the debate, which is free and open to the public. Each news source should have a live stream of the event on its website and a portal to the live blog featuring the readers, viewers and listeners of KNME, the Alibi, KUNM and the New Mexico Independent.
If you want to experience democracy in person, head down to the National Hispanic Cultural Center around 6 p.m. The debate starts at 7 p.m. There are about 300 seats in the theater, and it’s first-come, first-served.
We’ll be collecting questions from the audience for the candidates. You can submit a filmed question via YouTube. Details here. We’ll also be pulling questions from the live blog.
You’ll be able to hear the debate live on KUNM FM 89.9, as well.
City elections have a greater impact on your life in some ways that a presidential election. The mayor, the City Council, these are the politicians who make decisions about your neighborhood, your roads, your police force, your bars, many of the laws you have to follow, your job opportunities, the air you breathe, the water you drink, your public transit, etc.
So get involved. We want to hear from you. We want your future mayor to hear from you.
