Tulane University is sponsoring a student-planned forum where all New Orleans mayoral candidates will debate the biggest issues facing our city in the weeks leading up to the Feb. 6 primaries. The debate will be moderated by New Orleans journalist Clancy DuBos, who is a political columnist for "Gambit Weekly" and the on-air political commentator for WDSU-TV (NBC). Join us in McAlister Auditorium and get to know the candidates in what promises to be one of the most influential races in our city's history. Doors open at 7 p.m. The event is free and open to the public.
