"We think it's important for people in the neighborhoods to know something about the candidates that are running. So, this is a good opportunity for them to come out and hear what they have to say," said BGCAN Vice-Chair Vivian Gentry.

Questions submitted centered around what to do for the older population and support level for the greenways project.
