Boston Foundation, WBUR, and UMass Boston Partner on Boston Mayoral Forum

September 19 Forum to Be Broadcast Live on 90.9 WBUR, Boston’s NPR News Station, Video Streaming at umb.edu.

The Boston Foundation, WBUR, and the University of Massachusetts Boston’s McCormack School of Public Policy and Global Studies and College of Advancing and Professional Studies today announced they will partner to host a forum this fall with candidates for mayor of Boston. The forum will focus on how the candidates will address the varied needs of Boston’s residents, businesses, and neighborhoods, spark innovation and support urban communities.

The forum will be hosted at UMass Boston’s Campus Center. It will be broadcast live on 90.9 FM, WBUR with live streaming at WBUR.org and video streaming live on UMass Boston’s website, www.umb.edu. The forum, on Thursday, September 19 at 7 p.m., will be a two-hour discussion open to all 12 candidates on the ballot for the September 24th preliminary election. 

The forum will explore a full range of issues, including how the candidates would address the persistent disparities among Boston residents in income, education, and opportunity. The questions will be informed by the work of the McCormack Graduate School and the Boston Indicators Project at the Boston Foundation, which has tracked Boston’s success on more than 200 measures for more than a decade. More specific details will be released closer to the event.
