Live televised mayoral debate set

Evanston mayoral candidates will meet Tuesday for what’s being billed as the city’s first live televised mayoral debate.

The event will air at 6 p.m. on cable channel 16 from the studios of the Evanston Community Media Center at 1284 Hartrey Ave. It’s sponsored by the Evanston Chamber of Commerce.

Highlights from the program will be available on Evanston Now and ECMC plans to make the full program available online as well.

The program will be moderated by former Chicago Tribune writer and editorial board member John McCarron, now an adjunct lecturer at Northwestern University’s Medill School of Journalism.

Local journalists Mary Gavin of the Evanston Roundtable, Bob Seidenberg of the Evanston Review and Bill Smith of Evanston Now will question the candidates, and the candidates will also have an opportunity to pose questions to each other.
