Missouri City’s candidates for mayor and city council will participate in an Oct. 8 virtual forum hosted by the local chapter of Alpha Phi Alpha, an intercollegiate fraternity for African American men.
The candidate forum, scheduled to start at 6 p.m., will be moderated by ABC13 Houston’s Erica Simon and livestreamed on the chapter’s social media channels. Community members can view the event on the chapter’s Facebook page @XKL1906 or their Instagram @MoCityAlphas.
According to a news release from the chapter, all candidates who have filed for office have been invited, and candidates for the mayoral and at-large council races have confirmed their attendance. Topics discussed during the forum will include city services, infrastructure, preparedness plans and propositions on the Nov. 3 ballot.
Residents will also have the chance to ask the candidates questions and have them respond in real time, but must register and submit questions in advance for the question-and-answer session.
