The VPAC will host the Mayoral Forum for the Los Angeles County Mayor candidates Thursday.

The event will be preceded by a breakfast reception at 9 a.m. The debate will begin at 10 a.m. and go until noon.

Commuter students should take notice as the B1 parking lot will be reserved for attendees of the forum. If extra space is necessary, the event attendees will be directed to F10 in the northern part of campus, and shuttle rides will be provided.

Former Los Angeles Deputy Mayor Austin Beutner will be moderating the forum. Each candidate will be asked about key issues including fixing the economy, creating more jobs and workforce training.

They will discuss transportation issues, specifically the Metro, tourism in L.A. and trade infrastructure.

The forum will include front runners Wendy Greuel, Eric Garcetti, Kevin James, Jan Perry and Emanuel Pleitez.

This event will be free and open to the public.
