The Alachua County Labor Coalition (ACLC) will be hosting two forums with candidates in the upcoming Gainesville elections. Separate forums will be held for commission and mayoral candidates. ACLC members and the general public will ask questions on the topics of a living wage, affordable housing, transportation, health care, food access, corporate responsibity, criminal justice reform, and general governance. Prior to the forum, candidates will return ACLC questionnaires touching on the same topics.
The commissioner forum will take place on Thursday, July 14 at 6pm.
The mayoral forum will take place on Thursday, July 28 at 6pm.
Both forums will be held at Emmanuel Mennonite Church, 1236 NW 18th Ave. The ACLC is immensely grateful to Emmanuel Mennonite for the generosity in sharing their space.
ACLC Coordinator Bobby Mermer can be reached at Info@LaborCoalition.org should you have questions.
