Five candidates for Houston Mayor were invited to the Mayoral Forum. Emmy Award Winning journalist Miya Shay of ABC13 Houston moderated the event on August 29, 2023 from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. The Museum Park Super Neighborhood Council co-hosted the event with University Place Super Neighborhood and Congregation Emanu El. We met in Congregation Emanu El, 1500 Sunset Blvd. Each candidate was provided either one or two minutes to respond to each prepared question. The event was recorded and may be viewed in its entirety. (Speaking begins at 11 min. 25 sec. into the recording.)
The four candidates who participated in the forum were:
Council Member Robert Gallegos
Congresswoman Sheila Jackson Lee
State Senator John Whitmire planned to participate but was obligated to be in Austin.
