The forum is an opportunity for residents to submit questions with a Brooklyn focus, on a range of topics that will include infrastructure, schools, emergency preparedness, city services, transportation and transit, parks, development, businesses, and local jobs.

All mayoral candidates as of March 2013 have been invited to attend the forum (Sal Albanese, Adolfo Carrion, John Catsimatidis, Bill de Blasio, Joe Lhota, John Liu, George McDonald, Christine Quinn, and Bill Thompson). The forum will be moderated by Andrea Bernstein of WNYC and will be strictly timed. There will be 1.5-minute opening statements and 2-minute closing statements. The Civic Council invites all interested voters to attend this forum and hear the candidates’ vision for the future of Brooklyn and New York City. Reporters from all local news outlets, publications, and blogs are also welcome to attend.

Please submit your questions through Google Moderator (separate log-in may be required) and vote on questions of importance to you by May 3.

The forum is free to the public. RSVP or tickets are not required (but you may respond through the event's Facebook page if you wish); seating is on a first-come-first-served basis. Bring friends and voters!
