This June, San José residents will cast their vote for a new mayor. Four candidates with long histories of public service lead the race to guide the nation’s 10th largest city: Santa Clara County Supervisor Cindy Chavez and San José Councilmembers Dev Davis, Matt Mahan and Raul Peralez. Join SPUR, AARP, the Guadalupe River Park Conservancy, the San José Downtown Association, San José State University, Seamless Bay Area and SOMOS Mayfair for a mayoral candidate forum, moderated by NBC Bay Area’s Damian Trujillo, to hear where the candidates stand on the city’s most pressing challenges, including homelessness, housing costs, transportation investments and the economy.

This program will be both held in-person and streamed live over Zoom.
