City Council candidate forum packs City Hall

councildebate1

Here’s the scene outside the packed City Council candidate forum last night. Drawing over 200 people, it was one of the biggest crowds I’ve seen at City Hall. Attendees were greeted by a cheering section made up of (from left to right) Alex Zwirner, Peggy Connolly, Marya DuMont and others.

Candidates discussed a range of topics, including Winslow Way, development, sidewalks, shoreline planning and each other. The topic that popped up the most, however, was the city’s budget. Read my coverage of the event here.
