People's Forum!

First, and most important: Happy Martin Luther King Day! Tyler's thoughts of the day were on the News section of the site today, you can read them here:

Second, just got the official press release of the upcoming "People's Forum" that we are hoping will help voters differentiate between what Tyler and the other candidates have to offer ALL Louisvillians. Here's the skinny for the event:

Ten of Louisville’s grassroots social justice organizations are joining forces to present “The People’s Forum,” a mayoral candidate forum on Tuesday, February 2, 6-8 p.m. at the Metro United Way Building, 2nd floor, 334 E. Broadway. A reception will follow the event from 8-9 p.m. in which candidates may meet and greet the Forum audience. Admission to “The People’s Forum” is free, and granted on a “first come, first served” basis. Doors will open at 5:30 p.m.

Presenting organizations of “The People’s Forum” include: ACLU of Kentucky, Community Farm Alliance, Fairness Campaign, Hispanic/Latino Coalition, Jefferson County Chapter of Kentuckians For The Commonwealth, Kentucky Alliance Against Racist and Political Repression, Kentucky Jobs with Justice, Making Connections Network, Metropolitan Housing Coalition, and Women In Transition.

Each of the ten presenting organizations is non-partisan, and every mayoral primary candidate, regardless of political party affiliation, is invited to participate. Candidates will answer questions pre-submitted by each presenting group on issues important to their communities. Audience members will have the opportunity to submit questions that, dependent upon time, will be incorporated into the Forum.
