DETROIT – Several Wayne State University organizations are sponsoring separate town-hall-style public forums in October with Detroit mayoral candidates Mike Duggan and Benny Napoleon.

The events are presented by the Political Science Students Association in cooperation with Wayne State’s Law School, Pre-Law Students Association, Student Senate and Center for Peace & Conflict Studies.

The schedule will be:

Benny Napoleon – 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 23, Spencer M. Partrich Auditorium at the law school, 471 W. Palmer St., west of Cass Avenue.

Mike Duggan – 3:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 24, Alumni House, 441 Gilmour Mall (formerly Ferry Mall), off Cass Avenue behind the law school.

Each forum will include a brief presentation by the candidate followed by community conversations.

Questions for the candidates can be:

  • Emailed prior to the forums at pssa@wayne.edu.

  • Tweeted during the event to @futureoftheD #AskDuggan #AskBenny

  • Asked live from the audience.

Parking for both forums is available for $6.50 in Structure 1 across West Palmer Street from the law school.

A reception will follow each forum.
